Families, communities, cities and countries have witnessed a transformation, with access to HIV treatment accelerating in the past three years. A record 19.5 million people are accessing antiretroviral therapy, and for the first time more than half of all people living with HIV are on treatment. More countries are paying for HIV treatment themselves. More people living with HIV are employed, more girls are in school, there are fewer orphans, there is less ill health and less poverty. Families and communities are feeling more secure.
This report demonstrates the power of the 90–90–90 targets and what can be achieved in a short time. It shows that innovations are possible at every level—from communities to research laboratories, from villages to cities. It illustrates the power of political leadership to make the impossible possible.
