Loyce’s message for Prime Minister Trudeau

In this personal, heartfelt message, Loyce reflects on her journey over the years and her time with Prime Minister Trudeau and Mark Dybal in 2015 at the 5th GF replenishment meeting in Canada. In the build-up to the 7th Global Replenishment Meeting, Loyce once again appeals to Prime Minister Trudeau, stating:

“In my heart, I believe that no child has to be born with HIV the same way I did, and no one deserves to lose their loved ones due to AIDS or TB or malaria; no adolescent girl deserves to get infected with HIV, and no one should be denied access to quality HIV, mental health and sexual reproductive health services. We know what needs to be done. We can do it. The fight is not over as we move to sustain the gains made over the past years. We need your leadership which is of paramount importance within the GF and this has been evident over the past years. This is why we ask Canada to make a USD1.2 billion pledge within the 7th GF replenishment. It will change lives, it will give hope and help us to be better prepared for future threats, and will save 20 million lives, and I’m one of them”
