17 July is the Day of International Criminal Justice.
The Day marks the anniversary of the adoption of the Rome Statute on 17 July 1998, the founding treaty of the International Criminal Court, which seeks to protect people from genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and the crime of aggression.
The Day unites all those who wish to support justice, promote victims’ rights, and help prevent crimes that threaten the peace, security and well-being of the world.
"Smarter scale-up is needed to close the gap between people who know their HIV status and people who don’t," Michel Sidibé, Executive Director of UNAIDS.
Read UNAIDS recently released Gap report, which includes latest data on the global AIDS epidemic. The report highlights that 19 million of the 35 million people living with HIV today do not know that they have the virus. To close the gap between people who are reached with HIV services and people who are not, the report outlines that it will require research and innovation combined with protective laws that promote freedom and equality for all people.
