Embracing the theme ‘Let communities lead’ on World AIDS Day 2023, the Medicines Patent Pool amplifies the resilient voices of individuals in India, Kenya, Senegal, and South Africa—testimonies of courage, resilience, and the profound impact of community-led initiatives in the HIV response. As we delve into the heart of these communities, we unveil narratives of triumph over sickness, battles for treatment, encounters with stigma, and the invaluable strength derived from mutual support.
Through our commitment to voluntary licensing, we’ve empowered over 130 low- and middle-income countries with quality, affordable HIV treatments. Today, millions of lives are touched by the efficacy of generic medicines, a testament to the strength of collaboration and the enduring bond with the communities we serve. In the spirit of gratitude, we celebrate our partners and express heartfelt appreciation to the communities that stand with us, marking each step toward a healthier, more inclusive future.
