Forbes Philanthropy Summit: The Legacy of Ending AIDS for Good
Although the AIDS epidemic still takes a devastating toll in some parts of the world, it has been with us for decades, and to some extent has moved out of the news spotlight. The more exciting but less well known news may be that tools and treatment exist today which allow us to completely control what is essentially the modern plague. And for those who are living with HIV, it can be treated as a manageable chronic disease. The opportunity to make history is within reach, and we are living among the generation that could end the epidemic – with the right mix of focus, attention, knowledge, and resources. This session will explore how we can make ending AIDS our legacy, and what we need to do today to end AIDS for good. The goal of ending AIDS can only be achieved by fully addressing the inequality and the devastating impact HIV is having on women and girls; This session will explore why this is the case and what can be done about it. The 14th annual Dreamforce event is an opportune moment to bring together powerful thought leaders and speakers to highlight the incredible impact that is being made in the fight against AIDS, while also drawing attention to the unequal and devastating impact of HIV on women and girls.
