The 2016 High-Level Meeting on Ending AIDS will focus the world’s attention on the importance of a Fast-Track approach to the AIDS response over the next five years. The UNAIDS Fast-Track approach aims to achieve ambitious targets by 2020, including:
- Fewer than 500 000 people newly infected with HIV.
- Fewer than 500 000 people dying from AIDS-related causes.
- Elimination of HIV-related discrimination.
It is a unique moment in history. Ensuring the success of the SDGs, including ending the AIDS epidemic, will require global solidarity and partnership, especially in times of diverse and demanding global challenges. Focus must remain strong and commitment to leaving no one behind and building a more sustainable world by 2030 must continue to be unwavering.
