The theme of this year's World AIDS Day, "Shared Responsibility: Strengthening Results for an AIDS-free Generation" could not be more timely. It reminds us that we as the United States join countries around the world in this fight against HIV/AIDS and in creating an AIDS-free generation.
There are those who will say these goals can't be achieved -- that we'll never see and end to AIDS. But we know that these goals are achievable. With the right political leadership we will, by 2015, see the beginning of the end of AIDS.
