For the launch of London AIDS Memorial Campaign, Annie Lennox HIV Ambassador on 28 September 2011 made a statement concerning the proposal she said:

“Despite the fact that HIV/AIDS has been around for several decades, one of the biggest challenges is the all-pervasive stigma which still continues to keep the issue shrouded in secrecy, ignorance ,fear and shame, whether you live in Cameroon or Camden.

An AIDS memorial in the heart of London would set a wonderful example to other cities and send out a powerful statement to the world, not only by acknowledging those who have been taken in the pandemic, but would also call attention to the fact that HIV/AIDS  has not gone away, and is still devastating millions of people lives”.
