Prince Harry at the International AIDS Conference

July 23, 2016

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.
