Tasked by its Programme Coordinating Board (PCB), UNAIDS is in the process of extending its 2011-2015 strategy through the “Fast Track” period to 2016-2021 as an Updated Strategy, with ambitious goals set for 2020 and the aim of ending AIDS by 2030. Following consultations with civil society organizations and a deliberative internal process to identity critical priorities, NGO Delegation to the PCB calls on the UNAIDS Joint Programme to:
- Reassert itself as the world leader in best practices for addressing HIV;
- Assure that States and organizations can access the technical assistance needed for effective, evidence-based laws, policies, and programs; and
- Exert its moral authority and expertise with governments and funders as the global advocate for a human rights approach to HIV.
