Abstract:

A new target for HIV treatment scale-up.
The world is uniting around an ambitious HIV treatment target to lay the groundwork to end the AIDS epidemic as a public health threat by 2030. Through national, regional and global-level consultations, diverse stakeholders are pledging to ensure that by 2020:

90% of people living with HIV know their HIV status;
90% of people who know their status receive treatment;
90% of people on HIV treatment have a suppressed viral load.

Optimizing the use of diagnostics will be critical to achieve this target. In particular, it will be necessary to maximize innovative and effective use of available tools and to develop and scale up new tools and strategies to achieve the first and third parts of the target, ensuring the earliest possible diagnosis of HIV infection and promoting and measuring viral suppression for people receiving HIV treatment.
