Ending AIDS

Translating Progress into Success to End the AIDS Epidemic is a collaboration between amfAR, AVAC, and Friends of the Global Fight, with technical assistance from the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation. The report was conceptualized to take stock of how far we have come – and how far we have to go – toward ending HIV and AIDS around the world.
