How Many People Living with HIV Access Treatment? UNAIDS. (2016)


The current global target, agreed by the United Nations General Assembly in June 2016, is for 30 million people living with HIV to access treatment by 2020. UNAIDS is mandated by the United Nations General Assembly to track global progress against this and other global targets. A majority of countries regularly report treatment numbers and other data against a standard set of indicators to UNAIDS through the Global AIDS Response Progress Reporting (GARPR) system. UNAIDS works in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and other partners to validate these reports ahead of publication. For the minority of countries that do not provide reports, UNAIDS estimates their treatment numbers using a variety of data sources.
