Fast track cities London

FAST TRACK CITIES LONDONThe Fast-Track Cities initiative is a partnership of organisations, including the Mayor of London, NHS England, Public Health England and London Councils committed to working with partners across the city to reach the following goals by 2030:

  • End new HIV infections in the capital
  • Put a stop to HIV-related stigma and discrimination
  • Stop preventable deaths from HIV-related causes
  • Work to improve the health, quality of life and well-being of people living with HIV across the capital

Fast Tracks Cities London goes on to say "London is already leading the way in diagnosis and treatment, but now we want to be the first city in the world to end new cases of HIV. We want to get to zero new HIV infections, zero preventable deaths and zero stigma by 2030, making sure everyone with HIV is living well.

The Fast Track Cities initiative global partnership

The Fast Track Cities initiative is a global partnership between cities and municipalities around the world and four core partners:

  • International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC)
  • Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS)
  • United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat)
  • City of Paris

Launched on World AIDS Day 2014, the network has grown to include more than 300 cities and municipalities that are committed to attaining the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets by 2020:

  • 90% of all people living with HIV will know their HIV status
  • 90% of all people with diagnosed HIV infection will receive sustained antiretroviral therapy (ART)
  • 90% of all HIV-diagnosed people receiving sustained ART will achieve viral suppression. Achieving zero stigma is the initiative’s fourth, but no less important, target.

Mayors and other cities/ municipal officials designate their cities as Fast Track Cities by signing the Paris Declaration on Fast-Track Cities which outlines a set of commitments to achieve the initiative's objectives.

Initially heavily focused on the 90-90-90 targets, the Paris Declaration was recently updated to establish attainment of the three 90 targets as the starting point on a trajectory towards getting to zero new HIV infections and zero AIDS-related deaths.
