Stephen Lewis, AIDS-Free World Advocates for Increased Investments in Biosafety

IFBA201217 396x450Stephen Lewis, Co-Director AIDS-Free World, delivered the keynote address at IFBA’s International Conference and reminded delegates of the vital value of the work that is done in laboratories worldwide. He stressed the centrality of biosafety to global public health and called for increased attention and resources to be paid to this indispensable issue. Including the targets and objectives of biosafety into the agenda for an AIDS-free generation, the agendas of the World Health Assembly, UN Security Council, G8, G20, and post-2015 Millennium Development Goals should be vigorously pursued. Mr. Lewis concluded his address by acknowledging the important breakthrough that can be attained when it is unmistakably understood that HIV and the major diseases of the world cannot be handled without adequate biosafety and biosecurity measures in place.
