AVAC Report Finds That World is Already Falling Behind Pace to End AIDS Epidemic; Five Essential Actions Needed in 2013 to Avoid Historic Missed Opportunity
Date:11/27/2012

The world needs immediate answers to the question, 'What now?', and then it needs to act on them," said Warren. "We've identified what we believe are the five HIV prevention priorities that can make the greatest possible difference in the coming year. Whether we're on pace to end AIDS in a year's time will depend in large part on our success in these areas."

In 2013, donors, policy makers and civil society need to be held accountable for choosing, implementing and evaluating the right packages of interventions for specific circumstances.
  2. Close the gaps in the HIV "treatment cascade" – Antiretroviral treatment not only improves and prolongs the lives of those infected, it is among the most powerful HIV prevention strategies available, reducing the risk that an infected person will pass on HIV by up to 96 percent. But only a small proportion of people diagnosed with HIV are linked to antiretroviral treatment and an even smaller share stay on treatment and have their HIV infection suppressed to levels low enough to prevent transmission to others. A range of studies is looking at ways to narrow this gap, but these efforts are uncoordinated and incomplete. In 2013, researchers and funders need to convene and establish a clear research and implementation agenda to close the gaps in the treatment cascade.
  3. Prepare for new non-surgical male circumcision devices – In 2013, the World Health Organization (WHO) is expected to approve new male circumcision devices that could eliminate the need for surg
