New Fast-Track Cities Global Web Portal and City Dashboards to Help Cities Map and Visualize Their Responses and Drive Multi-Stakeholder Accountability
Three European and one U.S. city (Amsterdam, Denver, Paris, and Kyiv) announced 90-90-90 (HIV diagnosis, treatment, and viral suppression) data as part of a global Fast-Track Cities initiative that facilitates and tracks progress made by cities around the world towards attaining the United Nations’ 90-90-90 targets. The 90-90-90 and HIV care continuum data cited are featured on a landmark Fast-Track Cities Global Web Portal launched by IAPAC and its technical partner Dure Technologies. The web portal and the city dashboards that plug into the portal feature the transparent use of data to identify and understand gaps, barriers, and challenges in the HIV care continuum and track progress as cities fast-track their AIDS responses to attain the 90-90-90 targets. City dashboards are now available for Amsterdam, Denver, Kyiv, Paris, and San Francisco with additional cities around the world scheduled to roll out their city dashboards later in the year.
About the Fast-Track Cities Initiative
Fast-Track Cities is a global partnership between high HIV burden cities and four core partners - IAPAC, UNAIDS, the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), and the City of Paris. Since its launch on World AIDS Day 2014 in the City of Paris, cities in every region of the world have signed the Paris Declaration on Fast-Track Cities Ending the AIDS Epidemic, pledging to accelerate their AIDS responses to attain 90-90-90 and zero stigma and discrimination targets. Attaining these targets will contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) of ending AIDS as a public health threat by 2030, a goal that was embraced by United Nations (UN) member-states last month at the UN High-Level Meeting on HIV/AIDS in New York, NY, USA.
