Participants of the 2011 Global Youth Summit on HIV in Mali have issued a call to action for heads of states to include young people in the agenda of addressing AIDS. Their demands are for governments and world leaders to:

  • Secure resources and funding to support new youth leadership for a sustainable HIV response,
  • Protect and promote human rights to eliminate stigma and discrimination from legal frameworks, and
  • Deliver HIV information and services that meet the diverse needs of young people including key populations.

You can endorse this call to action by going to the What About HIV website and adding your name and email address to the document.
