I always have a sense of ambivalence about World AIDS Day. I recognise that it may be helpful to have a periodic wake-up call to all of us to renew our commitment to reducing HIV infections and working with PLHIV to promote their rights to healthcare and non-discrimination. However, I worry that the difficult questions about how we do this are not centre stage on World AIDS Day. Instead, it's possible, after a rousing day of speeches, to press the snooze button on the annual catchy slogans, so that they become little more than background noise to getting back to business as usual.
