The Vienna Declaration is the official declaration of AIDS 2010. The Declaration calls for drug policies that are based on scientific evidence rather than ideology. More specifically, the Declaration calls for the decriminalisation of drug use and the meaningful involvement of affected communities in developing policies and programmes.
As of today there are over 17,000 signatories including ex-President of Brazil, Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Michel Kazatchkine, the Executive Director of the Global Fund, and the First Lady of Georgia, Sandra Roelofs. The Declaration is a live call and signatures will continue to be collected in the lead up to the next International AIDS Conference that will take place in Washington D.C. in 2012.
