Description

[Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS(UNAIDS)]
 
Urban strategies and actions are central to achieving the SDGs, including ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030. Since World AIDS Day 2014, UNAIDS jointly launched the Paris Declaration on Fast-Track Cities Ending the AIDS Epidemic, more than 200 cities and municipalities around the world have committed to accelerate, focus and scale up their AIDS responses.Integrating the HIV response into the Sustainable Development agenda provides further opportunity to ensure better health, reduce inequality, advance human rights, and promote inclusive and equitable societies.
Many cities, with their unique understanding of the socio-cultural differences and vulnerabilities of their populations, are also in a position to demonstrate pillars of the New Urban Agenda in action by supporting and strengthening HIV prevention services and responding to the stigma and discrimination of people most affected by HIV and AIDS. The Cities of Bogota and Medellin are examples of local governments implementing innovative strategies to respond to the HIV epidemic putting them on the Fast Track to end the AIDS epidemic.
