The president of Uganda, His Excellency Yoweri Museveni, together with UNAIDS Executive Director, Michel Sidibe, launched the presidential fast track HIV situation room, a new tool that will be used to monitor progress towards ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030. This was during the International Women’s Day celebrations on 8 March 2018. The concept, supported by UNAIDS, is envisaged to make data revolution a reality in the HIV response and as well, support the implementation and realization of the end of AIDS target within the SDG agenda.

World AIDS Day 2017 marks completion of the first 50 days, the midway point of the first 100 days of implementation of the HIV Prevention 2020 Road Map. The Prevention Road Map, completed following extensive consultations with more than 40 countries, organizations and civil society partners, provides “the basis for a country-led movement to scale-up HIV prevention programmes as a part of a comprehensive response to meet the global and national targets, and commitments to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030.” (UNAIDS, 2017) The time is now to stop and assess progress to date.

Serious concerns have been raised relative to the stakeholders’ meeting that was held on 14-15 January2014 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s (DRC) capital Kinshasa. The meeting was the final country dialogue to validate the content and priorities of the country HIV concept note under the Global Fund’s new funding model (NFM). It included representatives from civil society, government, key affected populations and technical partners. The country dialogue was the first step in the grant application process under the NFM.
