Motion text

That this House supports the Youth STOPAIDS It Ain't Over Campaign; recognises that despite enormous progress made in the global HIV and AIDS response over the last 30 years, 2.1 million people newly acquired HIV in 2015 and AIDS remains the second biggest killer of adolescents and young people globally; acknowledges that UNAIDS estimates that to reach the sustainable development goal target on ending AIDS as a public health threat by 2030 a funding gap of 6 billion dollars must be filled each year; calls on the Government to mirror its recent increased investment in the Global Fund to fight AIDS TB and Malaria in other HIV and AIDS financing mechanisms; further calls on the Government to make an assessment of how HIV fits into its existing priorities particularly on women, girls, young people and adolescents and maintain a strong and high level UK presence at HIV and AIDS international forums; and calls on the Government to undertake a stock take review of its HIV programming, in order to assess how projects fit together and how the Government's cumulative global response to HIV and AIDS stacks up against international commitments it has made, in light of the expiration of the Department for International Development's strategy on HIV and AIDS in 2015.
