Global AIDS Monitoring Framework Helps Measure Countries’ Progress Toward Achieving Global Commitments
UNAIDS: Measuring progress against the 10 commitments through Global AIDS Monitoring
“At the United Nations High-Level Meeting on Ending AIDS in 2016, countries pledged to achieve a set of 10 Fast-Track commitments by 2020 — an acceleration agenda that aims to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals. To help ensure that the deadlines are met, the United Nations General Assembly requested an annual report on progress achieved in meeting those 10 commitments. UNAIDS supports countries to collect information on their national HIV responses through the Global AIDS Monitoring (GAM) framework — an annual collection of 72 indicators on the response to HIV in a country. These data form part of the data set used to report back to the General Assembly. … GAM is yet another way that UNAIDS is helping countries to monitor and respond to their HIV epidemics and work towards ending AIDS by 2030” (5/7).
