In her speech, HRH advocated for a “new generation leadership”, including young people in the fight against the disease.

“It is important that young people lead the fight because 40 percent of the primary HIV infection occurs in people between 15 and 24-years-old. It is important that young officers get the space they need to lead the fight against AIDS,” she told NRK.

According to the Crown Princess, one of the current issues regarding gathering interest in HIV prevention is to reach the audience.

“The biggest challenge in AIDS work today is that there is so much competition for attention. There are many other important issues in the world. It is also important now to get enough people treated, and a vital tool to prevent primary HIV infection,” she said.

A minor incident disturbed the meeting, when an individual perceived as aggressive and troublesome allegedly wanted to talk to Mette-Marit and came too close to the Crown Princess, but was restrained by bodyguards.

The episode did not disturb the Princess’ schedule in Vienna, Mette-Marit being determined to continue her mission as an UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador.
