Now more than ever: New strategies to fight back for HIV prevention

Even before COVID-19, the world was failing to meet global targets on HIV prevention. 2020 is the deadline for the fast track targets, when new HIV infections should be dropping below 500,000 per year. Instead, the most recent estimates from UNAIDS show that the number of people acquiring HIV is flatlining at 1.7 million in 2018. This is a failure of epic proportions - particularly for key populations and adolescent girls and young women, who continue to be left behind.

Under lockdown, women and girls face higher risks of infection, yet most can no longer access HIV or SRHR services. For key populations, COVID-19 restrictions are being used to further harass, abuse, and imprison those who are already criminalised, while lifesaving services have disappeared overnight.

Against this incredibly challenging background, this session hosted by Frontline AIDS will aim to:

1. Ignite the fight back for HIV prevention among the HIV activist community and inspire new commitment to action.

2. Share examples of successful activism led by people living with HIV and key populations and draw lessons from these movements to bring to the fight for HIV prevention.

Develop and mobilise around a common message to governments and donors that in the context of COVID-19, HIV prevention is needed now more than ever.
