IAPAC Launches ViiV Healthcare-Funded FTC Data Dashboards
‘Data-Informed, Equity-Based HIV Responses are at the Heart of Ending Urban HIV Epidemics’
Washington, DC, USA (December 1, 2019) – The International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC) today launched data dashboards visualizing baseline data for three Fast-Track Cities that are striving to attain and surpass the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) 90-90-90 targets. Among the US municipalities whose ViiV Healthcare-funded dashboards were launched today are Columbia, SC; Fulton County (Atlanta), GA; and Washington, DC.
The 90-90-90 targets translate into 90% of people living with HIV (PLHIV) knowing their status, 90% of PLHIV who know their status accessing antiretroviral therapy (ART), and 90% of PLHIV on ART achieving viral suppression. The Paris Declaration on Fast-Track Cities calls for attaining and surpassing the 90-90-90 targets, as well as addressing HIV-related stigma, on a trajectory towards getting to zero new HIV infections, zero AIDS-related deaths, and zero stigma.
|Fast-Track City (2018 data)||Know Status||On ART||Virally Suppressed|
|Columbia, SC (USA)||84%||N/A*||90%|
|Fulton County (Atlanta), GA (USA)||84%||87%||82%|
|Washington, DC (USA)||87%||78%||85%|

“Fast-Track Cities can only accelerate their HIV responses to achieve the 90-90-90 targets if they know their local epidemics – notably the gaps,” said IAPAC President/CEO Dr. José M. Zuniga. “That is why data-driven, equity-based HIV responses are at the heart of ending urban HIV epidemics by 2030.”
In addition to these three Fast-Track Cities, several more cities and municipalities are reporting new or updated 90-90-90 data on World AIDS Day 2019. These data are available at http://fast-trackcities.org.
