UN targets 2030 to end AIDS

THE United Nations (UN) has adopted the Zambia-Switzerland co-facilitated political declaration on ending AIDS by 2030 within the context of Sustainable Development Goals.
Zambia’s UN Permanent Representative Mwaba Kasese-Bota and her Swiss counterpart, Lauber Jurg, co-facilitated the high-level meeting that led to the adoption on Wednesday of the ambitious and action-driven political declaration with specific and time-bound targets to be reached by 2020 and end AIDS by 2030.
The declaration targets 2020 to work towards reducing the global numbers of people newly infected with HIV to fewer than 500,000 per annum and people dying from AIDS-related causes to fewer than 500,000 per annum, as well as to eliminate HIV-related stigma and discrimination.
