Takeaway

  • Entire regions are not on track to reach targets contained in the United Nations General Assembly’s 2016 Political Declaration on Ending AIDS.
  • The 2018 UNAIDS Communities at the Centre report shows that some gains continue to be made against HIV globally, however.

Why this matters

  • Targets: by 2020, to diagnose 90% of all HIV-infected persons, provide antiretroviral therapy (ART) for 90% of those diagnosed, and achieve viral suppression for 90% of those treated. 

Key results

  • 7.4 million more people still need effective treatment.
  • Global target of ART for 1.6 million children by 2018 has been missed.
  • Harm reduction services are sufficient in only a handful of countries.
  • Preexposure prophylaxis use globally is far short of target of 3 million people by 2020.
  • Despite early successes in reducing infections among young women, key populations are at risk, representing more than 50% of new HIV infections.
  • Eastern and Southern Africa have seen 44% mortality decrease, 2010-2018.
  • Eastern Europe-Central Asia and Middle East-North Africa have seen 5% and 9% increases, respectively.
  • 6 countries report hitting all 90-90-90 targets.
