Fast-Track Cities

Mayors and other elected leaders have joined forces with public health officials, clinical and service providers, and affected communities in 300+ cities and municipalities to action the Paris Declaration on Fast-Track Cities. Four core partners – IAPAC, UNAIDS, UN-Habitat, and the City of Paris – are supporting Fast-Track Cities as they fulfill a commitment to end the HIV, tuberculosis, and viral hepatitis epidemics by 2030.

Core Partner Messages

"We all share the same certainty: we no longer have the right to see and bear HIV aggravation when solutions exist. And because these solutions exist, we have no excuse for inaction. AIDS is a political fight, and I want to say it loud and clear: Paris is committed to end the AIDS epidemic."

Anne Hidalgo
Mayor of Paris

“Ending the epidemics of HIV, tuberculosis, and viral hepatitis by 2030 requires focus, leadership, transparency, and partnership. Fast-Track Cities are geographically and epidemiologically focused, exercising political and community leadership, committing to the transparent use of data-based metrics, and engaged in action-oriented partnerships, most notably with affected communities."

IAPAC President/CEO

UNAIDS Executive Director, a.i.

"Cities are one end of the complex rural-urban continuum of human settlements. It may appear that the HIV epidemic accelerated in cities due to proximity and density, but it is in cities that we find the most promising and tangible solutions to overcoming the epidemic today. With a focused implementation of the New Urban Agenda and the urban dimensions of the Sustainable Development Goals, ending the HIV epidemic is within reach if we all work together within existing public-private-people partnerships."

Maimunah Mohd Sharif
UN-Habitat Executive Director
