Italy Sees Prevention Efforts Key to Fight Against HIV/AIDS

June 13, 2011

The global fight against HIV requires a holistic approach that combines the benefits of science and social policies, Italy's permanent representative to the UN said Friday at the General Assembly High-Level Meeting on AIDS. "National ownership, alignment with national policies, and mutual accountability are cornerstones of the fight against HIV/AIDS," said Cesare Maria Ragaglini. He underscored the need to pursue gender equity and the empowerment of women, and he noted that Italy supports the "Walking Africa Deserves a Nobel" campaign, which proposes that African women be designated the winner of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize.
