World AIDS Day. December 1, 2018

Dear all,

Today marks the 30th Worlds AIDS Day. Today especially it’s important to take a moment to reflect on the scale of this epidemic- the 70 million people who have been infected with HIV, the 37 million who continue to live with infection, and the 1.8 million who will become infected in the next year. Those numbers often feel too large to comprehend, so instead I hope you can connect to something more immediate- the patients you treat, the research participants you’ve encountered, friends, and family members. As you all know, although there has been tremendous progress in the fight against HIV, there is still so much left to be done. However, I believe that we, as a community, will be able to end the HIV pandemic within our lifetimes, and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to be part to these efforts. And I especially feel privileged to be undertaking this monumental task together with such a committed and talented group of people.
I hope this day will provide a moment for you to remember all those lost and the terrible grief that HIV has caused, but I also hope that you will be reminded about the importance of the work you all do and the possibility of creating a world without HIV.

Doug
