Stephen Lewis’s Closing Address at the 2006 AIDS Conference

September 15, 2006

From the PDForum Listserv:

Here is the link to Stephen Lewis’s Closing Address at AIDS Conference held in August 13 -18, Toronto, Canada. I thought it will be of interest. Pardon me for cross-posting.

I would like to take this opportunity to encourage all of you (subscribers of PD Forum listserv) to continue sharing. As we all know the importance of knowledge sharing, let’s use this listserv to increase and strengthen our dialogue and action for social justice.


“This is the last speech I shall make at any of these international conferences in my role as United Nations Envoy. I’m glad, for obvious Canadian reasons, that it comes in Toronto. But I’m equally pleased because this has been a good conference, covering an extraordinary range of ground, and I therefore feel confident in asking you to join with me in giving force to the oft-repeated mantra: “Time To Deliver.”
