Linda-Gail Bekker, president of the International AIDS Society and AIDS 2018 co-chair, said about Harry: "His genuine commitment to the fight against AIDS is inspiring a whole new generation of leaders and reminding the world that AIDS is not over".
On the second day of a major global AIDS conference in Amsterdam, the celebrity duo lent their mega-wattage star power to efforts to end the lingering stigma around HIV, and protect future generations against it.
Among them are men aged 24 to 35 who are accessing HIV testing and treatment at 'unacceptably low rates, ' said Elton John.
"If there wasn't this bigotry and hatred, then this disease could be eliminated far quicker than you could ever think", John told reporters at an worldwide Aids conference in Amsterdam.
"If we want to win this fight, if we want to end AIDS once and for all, we must make men part of the solution". 'We still haven't managed to achieve hiv prevention on a large scale and to offer treatment to 15 million people with Aids'.
He continued: "There is a generational gap - there's a generational gap in pretty much every problem we have at the moment - but the younger generation not only have the solutions but have the capability to be able to solve these problems in a much shorter period".
"Young people are the only age group where HIV infections are rising, not falling", warned rock star and veteran AIDS campaigner John.

The new initiative was focused on "the tough but essential work of truly changing mindsets", he said.
South African actress Charlize Theron meanwhile also raised a flag for women.
"Limited access to education, a lack of economic autonomy and a lack of decision-making power, including over their own health, expose them to intimate partner violence, limit their ability to practise safer sex and limit their ability to benefit from HIV and sexual and reproductive health services, making them more vulnerable to HIV infection".
Today Harry praised the work that had already been done to tackle the virus and support those who are HIV positive, but warned there is still more to do.
New infections, though down, were still at 1.8 million a year ago, far short of the 500,000 annual ceiling the United Nations is targeting.
