"On World AIDS Day, we come together as a global community to honor the many lives we have lost, and to reaffirm our support for the millions of individuals and families who are still living with and affected by HIV/AIDS around the world.

On this day, we also gain strength by celebrating the important strides that we have taken over the past year, and recommit ourselves to the work still ahead to achieve an AIDS-free generation...

On this World AIDS Day, as we reflect on the extraordinary progress we have made together, it is important to remember that our work is far from finished.

With a sustained focus on strengthened results and shared responsibility, I know that we can get there."

-- Secretary of State John Kerry, speaking about the United States' continued commitment to the global fight against AIDS.
