Video: UNAIDS sets out five-year target to combat AIDS

UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé called on people around the world to help end the AIDS epidemic by 2030 on December 1, World AIDS Day. He also established a five-year target for 90 percent of people living with HIV to know their status; 90 percent of people who know their HIV-positive status to be on treatment; and 90 percent of people on treatment to have suppressed viral loads by 2020. Sidibé also took a moment to reflect on the people who have been affected by Ebola, comparing the emerging epidemic to the fight against AIDS. “Ebola reminds us what we were going through at the beginning of the fight against HIV,” said Sidibé.
