Together, the 28 countries account for 75% of all new HIV infections globally—1.2 million of the 1.7 million new HIV infections among adults in 2018. The report, Implementation of the HIV prevention 2020 road map, shows that among the coalition countries new HIV infections among adults declined on average by 17% since 2010, slightly higher than the global decline of 13%, but far short of the 60% decline needed in 2018 to meet global HIV prevention targets.
In 2018: 54% of new HIV infections were among key populations and their sexual partners, 40% decrease in new HIV infections since the peak in 1997, 37.9 million people living with HIV in the world, 1 700 000 children living with HIV (under 15 years).
This flagship report for ICPD25 examines the interplay between sustainable development, rights and changing demography and how this impacts the ability of governments, civil society and other stakeholders to achieve the vision set forth in Cairo and reaffirmed at the Midterm Review of the Asia Pacific Ministerial Declaration on Population and Development.
Communities make an invaluable contribution to the AIDS response. Communities of people living with HIV, of key populations—gay men and other men who have sex with men, people who use drugs, sex workers, prisoners, transgender people and prisoners—and of women and young people lead and support the delivery of HIV services, defend human rights, support their peers. Communities are the lifeblood of an effective AIDS response and an important pillar of support.

Community-led organizations are led by the people who they serve and are primarily accountable to them. In the AIDS response, this includes organizations by and for people living with HIV or tuberculosis and organizations by and for people affected by HIV, including gay men and other men who have sex with men, people who use drugs, prisoners, sex workers, transgender people, women and young people.
This Technical Brief provides practical guidance for countries in using a gender equity approach to maximize the impact of programs resourced by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund). Gender equity means everyone has an opportunity to attain their full health and well-being according to their respective needs, with no one disadvantaged due to gender norms, roles and relationships. The main audience for this brief is stakeholders who are directly involved in country-level processes to develop and write funding requests for the Global Fund.
The UNAIDS guidance document Fast-Track and human rights (2017) offers practical advice on why and how efforts to Fast-Track HIV services should be grounded in human rights principles and approaches, and why such efforts and responses should include the seven key programmes at a scale that can effect change. This guidance—Rightsbased monitoring and evaluation of national HIV responses—builds upon that advice, elaborating on rights-based monitoring and evaluation of HIV services with the aim to achieve human rights and equity in the AIDS response and to Fast-Track the end of the AIDS epidemic as a public health threat.

With the Ministerial Declaration of March 2019 having ostensibly set the direction of international drug policy for the next decade or so,1 the launch of the 2019 World Drug Report only three months later was arguably surrounded by less expectation than the year before. Then, while missing the opportunity to provide a review of progress made in the 10 years since the Political Declaration,2 its contents still had the potential to feed directly into the deliberations surrounding the UN’s latest soft law instrument pertaining to drugs. Nonetheless, as is the case regardless of the UN’s own review cycle, the World Drug Report remains significant.
