UNAIDS ‘90-90-90’ targets

In 2014, the UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) announced ambitious new global targets which build on its 'Getting to Zero' strategy and aim to end the HIV epidemic by 2030.

The UNAIDS 'Fast-Track' targets for 2020 are that:

  • 90 percent of people living with HIV will know their HIV status
  • 90 percent of people diagnosed with HIV will receive antiretroviral treatment
  • 90 percent of people on treatment will have suppressed viral loads.

Other significant targets are reducing the annual number of new HIV infections by more than 75% – to 500,000 by 2020 – and achieving zero discrimination.

In order to meet the '90-90-90' targets, UNAIDS says action during the next five years is crucial and calls for increased global investment.

UNAIDS’ aim is that these targets will increase to 95% by 2030.
