Fast track cities

FAST TRACK CITIES | MENRUS.CO.UKThe 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 attain 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.
