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 but we have what it takes to break the AIDS epidemic.
Already 15 million people are accessing life-saving HIV treatment and new HIV infections have been reduced by -35% since 2000 as well as AIDS-related deaths by -42% since the peak in 2004.
Front-loading investments in the fragile five-year window up to 2020 could reduce new HIV infections by 89% and AIDS-related deaths by 81% by 2030.
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.
The Fast-Track approach:
- 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.
