30 November 2015 – The world has come a long way since 2000, achieving the global target of halting and reversing the spread of HIV. New infections have fallen by 35% and AIDS-related deaths by 24%. Some 16 million people are now receiving antiretroviral treatment – more than 11 million of them in Africa. But even more innovative steps are needed so that the world can meet the Sustainable Development Goal target of ending the epidemic by 2030. This September, world leaders agreed ambitious interim targets to fast track efforts to end AIDS. WHO has issued recommendations to help achieve these targets.
