UN urges ‘fast-track’ approach to end AIDS epidemic


UNITED NATIONS, United States: Taking a fast-track approach in the battle against AIDS over the next five years will avert 21 million deaths and allow the world to end the epidemic by 2030, the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) said in a new report published on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila). The report “Fast-Track: ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030” outlines a set of targets that would need to be reached by 2020, including 90-90: 90 percent of people living with HIV knowing their HIV status; 90 percent of people who know their HIV-positive status on treatment; and 90 percent of people on treatment with suppressed viral loads.
