The 90-90-90 targets set by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) in 2014 call for 90% of people living with HIV (PLHIV) knowing their status, 90% of PLHIV who know their status on antiretroviral therapy (ART), and 90% of PLHIV on ART achieving viral suppression. Fully achieving the 90-90-90 targets translates into 90% of all PLHIV knowing their status, 81% of all PLHIV who know their status on ART, and 73% of all PLHIV on ART being virally suppressed.
According to UNAIDS, there has been substantial global progress made towards since 2014 in attaining the 90-90-90 targets. More than two thirds of all PLHIV globally knew their HIV status at the end of 2016. Among those who knew their HIV status, 77% were accessing ART, and 82% of PLHIV on ART had suppressed viral loads.

UNAIDS further announced on World AIDS Day 2017 that, as of June 2017, more than half of all PLHIV, 20.9 million, were accessing ART. This global ART scale-up is the main contributor to a 48% decline in AIDS-related deaths, from a peak of 1.9 million in 2005 to 1.0 million in 2016. However, 15.8 million PLHIV still need HIV treatment and, because most belong to stigmatized and vulnerable populations, they are at risk of being left behind. Stronger, smarter, more comprehensive action is thus needed now through 2020 to accelerate progress towards attaining each of the three 90 targets and to address gaps and shortcomings that jeopardize the potential to reach the targets in all settings and for all populations.
Global efforts to strengthen HIV prevention and ART program are also reducing the transmission of HIV. Since 2010, the annual number of new HIV infections (all ages) has declined by 16% to 1.8 million. The pace of decline in new HIV infections, however, is far too slow to reach the Fast-Track Target agreed upon by the United Nations General Assembly in 2016: fewer than 500,000 new infections per year by 2020. The need to curb both AIDS-related deaths and new HIV infections thus requires the world to connect the dots between the 90-90-90 targets, HIV epidemic control, and ending AIDS as a public health threat.
