This session will be held on Monday, 22 July, 11:00 – 11:45 am, in Press Conference Room (PCR), Casa Montejo 3, Centro Citibanamex, Mexico.

While different countries are at different levels of achieving AIDS targets of 90-90-90 by 2020 (90% people living with HIV know their status, 90% of these are on ART and 90% of these who receive ART are virally suppressed), it is HIGH TIME to set our eyes on targets to end AIDS by 2030, which are 100% of people living with HIV must know their status, 100% of people living with HIV must get ART, and 100% of HIV positive people must be virally suppressed and the new HIV transmission rate must be ZERO.
