UNAIDS is hosting two open virtual consultations and invites all interested stakeholders to participate. Each consultation will run for five days and will be held at critical points in the strategy development process. Inspired by the unprecedented progress made over the past several years, the international community, including the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) and the Member State-led Open Working Group on the Sustainable Development Goals, has embraced the ambition of ending the AIDS epidemic as a public health threat by 2030. To get there, the PCB has requested that the UNAIDS 2011–2015 Strategy be updated and extended for the 2016–2021 period to guide progress towards several ambitious Fast-Track Targets—targets that, if achieved by 2021, will set the trajectory for ending the epidemic by 2030.
