Abstract:

According to this brochure, there is inequity in progress towards the global goals of the AIDS response. AIDS is now the leading cause of death among adolescents (aged 10–19) in Africa and the second most common cause of death among adolescents globally. There were 250 000 [210 000–290 000] new HIV infections among adolescents in 2013, two thirds of which were among adolescent girls. To end the AIDS epidemic by 2030, specific—yet flexible—strategies are needed for different age groups, populations and geographical locations. Ending the epidemic among adolescents requires amplifying investments where they can make the most difference and fostering innovation by adolescents and youth themselves, as well as governments, international organizations, civil society and the private sector. The next five years are crucial. If we are able to rapidly scale-up HIV testing, high-impact treatment and combination prevention programmes between now and 2020—and we address the social context that creates HIV risk and vulnerability among adolescents—the world will be on track to not only end adolescent AIDS, but to end the AIDS epidemic as a public health threat for everyone by 2030. All In is Fast-Track for adolescents—building from the Fast-Track initiative to accelerate service delivery towards attaining the 90–90–90 treatment targets and other targets.
