Mayor Marty Walsh Signed the 2014 Paris Declaration

On Thursday, August 31, 2017 Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh, seated, signed the Paris Declaration. Witnessing the signing, from left to right, are: Bisola Ojikutu, M.D. of Brigham and Women’s Hospital; Oscar Guevara-Perez of The Fenway Institute; Carl Sciortino, executive director of AIDS Action Committee; Chioma Nnaji of the Multicultural AIDS Coalition; Christopher Brennan, AIDS Action Committee’s Getting To Zero program coordinator; Kenneth H. Mayer, MD, Medical Research Director and Co-Chair of The Fenway Institute; José M. Zuniga, PhD, MD, President & CEO of the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care; Michelle Bordeu, MPH, Associate Vice President for Programs at Fenway Health; and Rita Nieves, deputy director of the Boston Public Health Commission.

What this means for our work:

Boston has now officially become a Fast-Track City:

  • The Walsh Administration has committed to achieving the UN/WHO 90-90-90 goals by 2020, and to ending AIDS by 2030.
  • The International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC) will be working with the Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) to add Mayor Walsh and Boston to
  • An action plan will be developed for Boston and we will start to look beyond Boston to how other cities can learn from, benefit by, and participate in achieving these goals together.
