Fast-Track Cities

Ending AIDS as a public health threat by 2030 is feasible if high HIV burden cities around the world fast-track their AIDS responses. Since its World AIDS Day 2014 launch, Mayors and other municipal leaders have joined forces with civil society representatives to action the Paris Declaration on Fast-Track Cities. Four core partners – the City of Paris, IAPAC, UNAIDS, and UN-Habitat – are working with Fast-Track Cities in every region of the world to attain this global initiative’s 90-90-90 and zero stigma and discrimination targets by 2020.

Leadership 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 AIDS as a public health threat 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."

José M. Zuniga
IAPAC President/CEO

"Cities are playing a critical role in reaching UNAIDS Fast-Track targets, including the 90-90-90 treatment target by 2020. Reaching Fast-Track targets will require extraordinary and urgent efforts. Through strong political commitment and by sharing knowledge of what works at home, cities are leading the way towards ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030."
