Minister Morales urged world solidarity and cooperation as the best and only way to achieve the common goal of eradicating the disease by 2030.

The Cuban health minister insisted that no national or international legislation, agreement, or policy should limit universal access to the best treatment available for patients infected with the virus, which has caused more than 34 million deaths since 1981 and today affects some 37 million others worldwide.
