The 2018 International AIDS Conference held in Amsterdam had Prince Harry as an attendant. According to Express, Prince Harry supports the ongoing battle against HIV.
“It is about being able to normalize the conversation around HIV because it is a virus you can live with now, which is different to many many years ago. In order to normalize it, those communities who have never had an HIV problem need to start talking about it.” The Royal says.
Harry affirms that the younger generation will not watch and wait and they will answer the call for action.
“We have to put the power into the hands of the younger generations because that’s where the solutions are going to come from, and that’s where engagement is coming from. There is a generational gap in pretty much every problem that we have at the moment. The younger generation not only have the solutions but have the capability to be able to solve these problems in a shorter period. It has to part of policy change.” the 33-year-old said.
The fight against HIV/AIDS was one the causes for Harry’s mother,
Princess Diana, Harry’s mother, was herself a supporter of the fight against AIDS/HIV and in 1987 she opened at London Middlesex Hospital the U.K.’s first purpose-built unit to treat the disease.
As part of his charity Sentebale and its Let Youth Lead program, Prince Harry attended the conference. His charity supports HIV-positive young people in the African nations of Botswana and Lesotho.
During his trip, Harry visited with children at Mamohato Children’s Centre and Mamohato Children’s Camp and took some pictures showed on Monday.
“As always Prince Harry, not one to stand by and watch, got stuck in as the children from the Mamohato Children’s Centre played games as part of a program that educates and helps empower them to take control of their future,” Chris Jackson, the photographer who took the pictured said.,
