Following his HIV test last week Prince Harry has taken to the international stage to raise awareness of HIV and Aids at a conference in South Africa.
The 31-year-old royal, evoking the memory of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, told delegates in Durban: “When my mother held the hands of a man dying of Aids in an east London hospital, no one imagined a quarter of a century later HIV-positive people would live full, healthy, loving lives.”
But, he added, despite huge progress in the struggle against HIV and Aids, “we now face a new risk – the risk of complacency”.
Harry, whose charity Sentebale already focuses on supporting HIV-positive young people in Lesotho, is now aiming to spread the message to his generation that the fight against HIV and Aids has not yet been won.
