为纪念第30个世界艾滋病日以及美国实施总统防治艾滋病紧急救援计划（PEPFAR）15周年，上海美国中心请到了领馆外交官Sean R. Brennan来做一场有关全球艾滋病防治的讲座。美国总统防治艾滋病紧急救援计划自2003年实施以来，得到了国会两党和公众的大力支持。该计划旨在促进全球艾滋病毒/艾滋病应对的长期可持续性，目标是开创一个可以通过药物控制艾滋病毒的时代。如今，虽然许多艾滋病病毒感染者能够享受长寿和充实的生活，也有另一些人没有这么幸运。据世界卫生组织估计，2017年有近100万人死于艾滋病相关疾病。如何应对艾滋病这个最严重的健康危机之一，对我们的技术实力、社会创新、领导力都提出了挑战。
To mark the 30th Anniversary of World AIDS Day and 15 years of the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the Shanghai American Center welcomes Foreign Service Officer Sean R. Brennan for a conversation about the history of the global HIV/AIDS response. From its inception in 2003, PEPFAR received strong bipartisan and public support. PEPFAR promotes the long-term sustainability of the global HIV/AIDS response, with the goal to usher in an era in which HIV can be controlled with medication. Today, while many people living with HIV are able to enjoy long and fulfilling lives, some are not as fortunate. The World Health Organization estimates that nearly 1 million people died of HIV-related illnesses in 2017. How the world responds to one of the greatest health crises of the past century challenges our technological prowess, social innovation, and leadership.
今年的世界艾滋病日主题是“知晓你的感染状况”（Know your status）。自1988年一来，全球艾滋病防治工作取得了重大的进展。如今，四分之三的艾滋病毒感染者了解自己的状况。然而，联合国艾滋病规划署提醒我们，艾滋病防治工作还有很长的路要走，其中就包括让那些尚不了解自己的艾滋病毒感染状况的感染者获得相应的防治资源，
This year’s World AIDS Day theme is “Know your status”. Significant progress has been made in the AIDS response since 1988, and today three in four people living with HIV know their status. However, UNAIDS reminds us that we still have miles to go and that includes reaching people living with HIV who do not know their status and ensuring that they are linked to quality care and prevention services.
