Funding for efforts to slow the spread of HIV by treating all infected people has flatlined, and many countries, for a host of reasons, can’t or won’t mount aggressive responses. “We will not be able to meet the prevention goal,” said Michel Sidibé, director of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) in Geneva, Switzerland. “We have a prevention crisis.”

Response to HIV/AIDS epidemic at risk of 'dangerous complacency' as urgent change in approach is needed

The HIV pandemic is not on track to end by 2030 and current approaches to HIV control are not enough to control it, according to a new Lancet Commission led by the International AIDS Society.
