“Cities all over the world are key players that can fast-track the response in order to ultimately end the AIDS epidemic. Our duty is above all a human one. As elected representatives, our choice is to demonstrate solidarity. In Paris, we are determined to take our responsibilities and to live up to our commitments.” – Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris
"We all share the same certainty: We no longer have the right to see and bear the worsening of the HIV epidemic when solutions exist. And because these solutions exist, we have no excuse for inaction. AIDS is a political fight, so I want to say it loud and clear: Paris is committed to ending the AIDS epidemic."
