    UNAIDS 2016–2021 Strategy “On the Fast-Track to end AIDS”

    Adopted by the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board Strategy in October 2015, the UNAIDS 2016–2021 Strategy “On the Fast-Track to end AIDS” seeks to achieve a focused set of ambitious and people-centred goals and targets by 2020 in order to end the AIDS epidemic as a public health threat in all places and among all populations by 2030. With a universal agenda, firmly grounded in evidence and rights-based approaches, the strategy maps out the UNAIDS Fast-Track approach to accelerate the AIDS response over the next five years to reach critical HIV prevention and treatment targets and achieve zero discrimination.

    The UNAIDS 2016–2021 Strategy is one of the first in the United Nations system to be aligned to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which set the framework for global development policy over the next 15 years, including ending the AIDS by 2030.
