It will first focus on the following criteria to deliver better care to people living with HIV and to prevent further transmission.

  • Widespread testing and linking people to care and treatment.
  • Offering broad support and care for people living with HIV.
  • Universal viral suppression among people living with HIV, to reduce transmission of HIV to others.
  • Full access to pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) services, which support people at high risk for HIV by reducing the likelihood of HIV infection with daily medication.
 Secondly, it will target resources toward HIV prevention, testing, and treatment interventions that have a proven record of success. It will also support ongoing research to open up new prevention and treatment options.

Finally, it will focus on key populations most at risk for getting affected by HIV. It aims to lower the rates of HIV among many high-risk populations. This means focusing on key populations that are disproportionately impacted by this disease.
