Report of the Secretary-General

09 May 2016

The high-level meeting on HIV/AIDS, to be held in June 2016 by the General Assembly (see resolution 70/228) is a pivotal occasion to rally global commitment to the fast-track targets and core actions for ending AIDS by 2030, as outlined in the UNAIDS 2016-2021 Strategy, “On the Fast-Track to end AIDS”. It provides the opportunity to build on the lessons learned from the AIDS response and to work with the people, institutions and networks that sustain it, to truly advance a paradigm shift to the integrated development approach envisioned in the Sustainable Development Goals. Together we can achieve success, measured by the assurance of people’s health, human rights, dignity and ability to thrive in the long term.
