Date Time

We have less than eight years to reach the SDG 3 goal for ending the HIV epidemic as well as SDG Goal 5 on addressing gender equality. COVID19 has knocked us severely off-track, by disrupting livelihoods and health systems as well as reversing already made gains - this is not the time for complacency. AIDS2022 is an optimal time to reinvigorate the fight and the ambition for what we can and must achieve. With the Global Fund's Seventh Replenishment this year– we have a chance to readjust, course-correct and more importantly, recommit to achieving these goals. The session will shed light on the results achieved (from the perspective of 20 years of scale up) but also the challenges remaining as well as emerging; and will provide an opportunity to particularly emphasize perspectives from affected and impacted communities. It will also highlight examples of how we can collaborate with, leverage and maximize the engagement and leadership of communities and partners to accelerate progress towards gender equality and human rights, and to ensure that we Leave No One Behind in ending AIDS as a public health problem and reducing new HIV infections.
