#TheUNAIDSWeNeed - Must Leave No One Behind
Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The 40th meeting of the Programme Coordinating Board of the Joint Programme of the United Nations on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) is taking place in Geneva, Switzerland between June 27 and 29, 2017.

This important meeting will focus on the refinement of the UNAIDS operating model. For years there has been a global crisis in HIV funding, UNAIDS has also been affected. The new operating model will try to look into rationalizing its structure and operations so that it can still work for meeting the 90-90-90 targets and the objective of ending AIDS by 2030.

In the lead up to the meeting, the NGO Delegation to the PCB have started a campaign #TheUNAIDSWeNeed with 10 key messages to make sure that the voices of communities and civil society are heard in the process. Communities of people living with HIV and other key populations and civil society has been sending photos, showing specific message about the UNAIDS.

The Delegation also produced a series of blogs reflecting on the consultation of the findings and recommendations of the Global Review Panel on the new UNAIDS operating model. Our colleague, Ferenc Bagyinszky - PCB Europe Delegate, also wrote a piece about his reflection about the consultation which you can read below.

If you attend the meeting as a Civil Society Observer, please make sure that you also attend the planning and briefing sessions with the NGO Delegation. For time and place of these meetings please contact the NGO Delegation at: pcb.ngo@gmail.com

With kind regards,

#TheUNAIDSWeNeed – Must Leave No One Behind
On April 28, 2017 UNAIDS held a multi-stakeholder consultation on the findings and the recommendations made by the Global Review Panel that looked into the future operating model of the United Nations Joint Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).  
The consultation covered three key areas of the report – financing and accountability, joint working, and governance – that need to be addressed so that UNAIDS can fulfil its role in reaching the 90-90-90 targets by 2020 and ending AIDS by 2030.

AIDS data contains the very latest data, from the end of 2015 and in mid-2016, on the world’s response to HIV: the latest information on the number of people living with HIV, the number of new HIV infections, the numbers of people—both adults and children—on HIV treatment, the coverage of prevention of mother-tochild transmission of HIV services and expenditure on the AIDS response, both domestic and international.

Trends show both the remarkable progress made in HIV treatment and the challenges that exist for HIV prevention. By region and by country, by sex and by age, data are presented through both graphs and charts and in extensive tables. This publication brings together in one place a part of the huge volume of data collected by UNAIDS over the years. The full data set of information for 1990 to 2015 can be found on an interactive website: aidsinfo.unaids.org 

90–90–90 - an ambitious treatment target to help end the AIDS epidemic

In December 2013, the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board called on UNAIDS to support country- and region-led efforts to establish new targets for HIV treatment scale-up beyond 2015. In response, stakeholder consultations on new targets have been held in all regions of the world. 
Powerful momentum is now building towards a new narrative on HIV treatment and a new, final, ambitious, but achievable target:
By 2020, 90% of all people living with HIV will know their HIV status.
By 2020, 90% of all people with diagnosed HIV infection will receive sustained antiretroviral therapy.
By 2020, 90% of all people receiving antiretroviral therapy will have viral suppression.
