Cordaid was present at AIDS 2018, the largest conference on any global health or development issue in the world. One of the most important questions during the conference was: how do we eradicate HIV/AIDS by the year 2030?

Jean-Aimé lives in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Marietta and Franck live in the Central African Republic, countries not only ravaged by war but also hard hit by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. They are participating in Jeune S3, Cordaid’s program for education on sexual and reproductive health and rights in fragile countries.
We invited these three young people to the conference, which took place in Amsterdam from the 23rd to the 27th of July and we asked them what they think is the most important step to an HIV/AIDS-free world.

Cordaid contributes to the international goal of ending HIV/AIDS by 2030. With the help of local partner organizations and the financial support of the Global Fund, we are able to execute an extensive program in the Democratic Republic of Congo. There, Cordaid provides antiretroviral drugs to people in remote areas, strengthens the health system and helps to prevent HIV/AIDS through educational programs.
