UNAIDS Report Sets ‘Ambitious Targets,’ Focuses On Reducing New HIV Infections

Center for Global Development’s “Views from the Center”: World AIDS Day 2014: UNAIDS Shifts Its Emphasis toward Reducing New Infections
CGD Senior Fellow Mead Over discusses an annual report by UNAIDS that “for the first time focus[es] more on the need to reduce new [HIV] infections than on treatment expansion. … Instead of hoping only for constant coverage, or perhaps failing to sustain even that modest goal, UNAIDS is proposing instead that the world adopt ‘ambitious targets’ by aiming for ‘zero,’ which they define as reducing new HIV infections and AIDS deaths by at least 90 percent by 2030…” (11/25).
