After 15 months of continuous consultation with over 10,000 stakeholders in 160 countries, the UNAIDS Program Coordinating Board adopted a new global AIDS strategy on 25 March 2021. The Global AIDS Strategy 2021–2026, End Inequalities, End AIDS (attached) uses an inequalities lens to close the gaps impeding progress to end AIDS and sets out bold new targets and polices to be reached by 2025 to propel new energy and commitment to ending AIDS.The three strategic priorities set out in the strategy are to:
*maximize equitable and equal access to comprehensive people-centred HIV services;
**break down legal and societal barriers to achieving HIV outcomes; and
***fully resource and sustain HIV responses and integrate them into systems for health, social protection and humanitarian settings.The new strategy will inform discussions/negotiations at the High Level Meeting and also form the basis of our work.
