ON THE FAST-TRACK TO END AIDS
ALREADY 15 MILLION PEOPLE ARE ACCESSING LIFE-SAVING HIV TREATMENT. NEW HIV INFECTIONS HAVE BEEN REDUCED BY 35% SINCE 2000 AND AIDS-RELATED DEATHS HAVE BEEN REDUCED BY 42% SINCE THE PEAK IN 2004.
The world is on the Fast-Track to end AIDS. To end the AIDS epidemic by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals will require investment, commitment and innovation to be accelerated.
The Fast-Track approach as defined by UNAIDS includes:
- Front-loads investments.
- Focuses on the locations, populations and programmes that deliver the greatest impact.
- Catalyses innovation for people who need it most.
- Engages local leadership for targeted, sustained and accountable responses.
- Creates new partnerships.
- Stands firm on human rights.
- Delivers results that leave no one behind.
Fast-Track will change the lives of millions of people around the world. We have a fragile window of opportunity—just five short years to break the epidemic.
On this World AIDS Day, join us on the Fast-Track to end AIDS.
