GLOBAL: The Lancet: Steady but variable progress towards global HIV targets

An eclectic mix of countries have already reached the UNAIDS 95-95-95 targets, but others including Russia, Ukraine, and the USA remain off track. PAC’s Bruce Richman is quoted about why the US lags behind:

“The alarming low viral suppression rate in the USA is indicative of a larger, systemic issue—the devaluation of lives of people with HIV, particularly communities of colour”, says Bruce Richman, Founder of the Prevention Access Campaign that launched the Undetectable=Untransmittable movement. “This is not only a moral failing, it also impedes progress toward ending the HIV epidemic. Recognising the significance of investing in the health of people with HIV is pivotal for achieving a societal, economic, and public health win by eliminating onward transmission.”
