NYC and Geneva Surpass UNAIDS 90-90-90 HIV Targets
Fast-Track Cities Release New HIV Testing and Treatment Data

Washington, DC, USA (December 2, 2019) – Health officials in New York City, NY, USA, and the Canton of Geneva, Switzerland, announced today that these two cities have surpassed the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) 90-90-90 targets. The Paris Declaration on Fast-Track Cities calls for attaining and surpassing the targets, which 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.

New York City, which became a Fast-Track City in 2016, is the first Fast-Track City in the United States to surpass the 90-90-90 targets by attaining 93-90-92. By attaining 90-96-93, the Canton of Geneva becomes the fifth European municipality to reach this important milestone, joining the cities of Amsterdam, Netherlands; Brighton, UK; London, UK; and Manchester, UK. The Canton of Geneva was among the 26 initial cities and municipalities to join the Fast-Track Cities network in 2014.

“The attainment of these global programmatic targets by New York City and the Canton of Geneva marks a momentous milestone on any Fast-Track City’s journey towards ending its HIV epidemic,” said IAPAC President/CEO Dr. José M. Zuniga. “We congratulate the political and public health leaders, clinicians and services providers, and community members who have made these achievements possible. We also encourage their ongoing efforts to get to zero new HIV infections, zero AIDS-related deaths, and zero stigma by 2030.”

As a core partner of the Fast-Track Cities initiative, IAPAC today launched new interactive data dashboards made possible through support from the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and ViiV Healthcare. The dashboards illustrate baseline 90-90-90 data for eight Fast-Track Cities:

Fast-Track City (2018 data) Know Status On ART Virally Suppressed
Columbia, SC, USA 84% N/A* 85%
Fulton County (Atlanta), GA, USA 84% 87% 82%
Jefferson County (Birmingham), AL, USA 84% 76% 83%
Kampala, Uganda 59% 98% 93%
Lagos, Nigeria 66% 99% 84%
Washington, DC, USA 87% 78% 85%
Windhoek, Namibia 85% 89% 73%
Yaoundé, Cameroon 74% 87% N/A*

“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 across the HIV care continuum,” said Dr. Zuniga. “That is why data-driven, equity-based HIV responses are at the heart of ending urban HIV epidemics by 2030, and a priority for technical assistance to Fast-Track Cities.”

These eight municipalities whose data dashboards were launched today are among a total of 42 Fast-Track Cities that are reporting new or updated 90-90-90 data this year. Several of these cities and municipalities have reported significant progress since the year they reported their baseline data, including:

  • Bangkok, Thailand, which went from 79-57-79 (2016) to 92-78-76 (2018);
  • Kyiv, Ukraine, which went from 51-44-85 (2015) to 73-73-96 (2018); and
  • Nairobi County, Kenya, which went from 77-96-55 (2016) to 79-99-92 (2018).

“The progress made in Bangkok, Kyiv, and Nairobi County is a testament to prioritizing programs and resources towards leaving no woman, man, or child behind, which includes addressing health inequalities,” said Dr. Zuniga. “Kyiv’s progress, for example, demonstrates that even in a city resisting strong epidemiological headwinds faced by other cities in Eastern Europe, our calculus for success – political commitment, public health innovation, and the meaningful engagement of affected communities – is working.”
