Officials at the 18th International AIDS Conference say more than 15-thousand people have signed the Vienna Manifesto.

The document aims to protect the rights of people who are living with the HIV virus around the world.

The president of the International Aids Society says he hopes the Vienna conference will become a milestone in the battle against the HIV virus.

He believes it is essential that all HIV/AIDS sufferers have the right to proper medical treatment.

He also notes that China has entered an important phase in its fight against the virus.

The president also stresses that the Vienna conference will call for more involvement of the international community to help with AIDS control.

As a result of the economic crisis, money donated by developed countries has decreased by around 100 million US dollars. The UN is now asking more countries to give economic support, and do their best to stop the spread of AIDS.
