90-90-90: On the right track towards global target

UNAIDS

This report describes the coalescence of the AIDS response and the broader global health and development field around the 90-90-90 target over the last two years. It explores the key factors that have convinced the world to embark on the movement to leverage HIV treatment to help end the AIDS epidemic in the next 15 years. The report also describes how the 90-90-90 agenda is helping to improve the efficiency of treatment programmes and national responses, benefiting from and catalysing innovation, and encouraging steps to lay the foundation for long-term sustainability of treatment efforts.
