2015 progress report on the global plan towards the elimination of new HIV infections among children and keeping their mothers alive


This is the fourth annual report of the Global Plan, and it summarizes the progress made through December 2014. The final accountability report of the Global Plan will be issued in 2016 when data for the end of 2015 will be available. The Global Plan was developed during 2010 by a Global Task Team (GTT) co-chaired by UNAIDS and the Government of the United States. The GTT consisted of a consortium of stakeholders from 25 countries and 30 civil society groups, private sector partners, networks of people living with HIV and international organizations. The Global Plan was launched as a major new global initiative in 2011, but it uses 2009 as the baseline year against which to measure progress.
