HIV PREVENTION 2020 ROAD MAP
The HIV Prevention 2020 Road Map was prepared through a consultative process that brought together more than 40 countries and organizations, including civil society organizations, networks of people living with HIV, faith-based organizations, networks of key populations and international organizations and foundations, to chart the way forward to achieving global HIV prevention goals by 2020.
Country assessments and national consultations were organized in participating countries from June to September 2017 towards reaffirming national leadership for HIV prevention, reviewing progress and discussing accelerated action for prevention. Thematic consultations and case study reviews were also conducted to develop key elements of the road map, most of which are also contained in a global results framework first proposed in a journal paper published in the Lancet in 2016, available here.
The road map is relevant for all low- and middle-income countries, but it focuses on 25 countries with high numbers of new HIV infections among adolescents and adults in 2016. Exceptional international and national efforts are needed in these countries, which account for almost 75% of new adult HIV infections globally. All countries, however, need to intensify HIV prevention efforts to meet commitments to end the AIDS epidemic.
