Successes in preventing mother-to-child transmission mean that 2 million new HIV infections in children have been prevented since 2000. To reach the UNAIDS targets for 2020 we must reduce annual new infections to 20,000 by 2020.
UNAIDS launched their Fast-Track strategy in 2014 with the aim to end AIDs as a public health threat by 2030. To do this they have introduced key targets for prevention and treatment, known as the 90-90-90 targets, shown here.
HIV continues to disproportionately affect young people and adolescents. In 2014, it was estimated that 3.9 million young people were living with HIV around the globe, and that 62,000 of the new infections occur among young people.
