Reaching global HIV/AIDS goals: What got us here, won't get us there

El-Sadr, Wafaa Mahmoud; Harripersaud, Katherine; Rabkin, Miriam

A decade ago, today’s progress towards confronting the global HIV epidemic would have been unimaginable. A remarkable global mobilization of resources through the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Global Fund for AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, combined with the commitment of affected countries and communities, has enabled 19.5 million persons living with HIV (PLHIV) to access life-saving antiretroviral therapy (ART) [1]. This has resulted in decreasing HIV-related morbidity and mortality and contributed to a significant decline in the number of new infections [1].
