Tribute to Nelson Mandela

February 7th, 2014

Mandela“History will surely judge us harshly if we do not respond with all the energy and resources that we can bring to bear in the fight against HIH/AIDS.”

Health and dignity are inextricably intertwined. Nelson Mandela unwaveringly fought for dignity, and human rights were at the very core of his existence. When AIDS began to affect his country, he immediately saw in it another facet of this universal fight.

Nelson Mandela was the first world leader to make the fight against the stigma that seropositive people face a political one. He will remain a major figure in the history of human rights and the fight against HIV/AIDS.
