"To achieve the 2030 sustainable development goal and end the AIDS epidemic, we must not only 'never let anyone fall behind,' but also encourage the community that needs the most attention to interact more proactively," Kong Lingkun, president of Love Without Borders, said at the memorial.
Kong, who is also the sponsor of U=U China Anti-AIDS Network, said that "AIDS and zero discrimination can't just remain a slogan. U=U is a powerful tool to break the stigma, and no one should reject the facts."
