Ambitious Targets Important For Progress Toward Ending AIDS
AVAC: Guest Blog by UNAIDS’ Chris Collins — Fast Track: New AIDS targets and the urgency for action
Chris Collins, chief of the Community Mobilization Division at UNAIDS, discusses the U.N. agency’s “90 90 90” plan, and a new Fast Track initiative to help countries evaluate and implement programs to reach their goals. “…Without ramped up delivery of lifesaving treatment and targeted prevention in the next five years, along with advances in non-discrimination and human rights that make these services possible, the AIDS epidemic will remain a serious global health threat as far as we can see. We have the chance to change that outcome — but will we seize it?” (11/12).
