Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all, including people living with and at higher risk of HIV, and at all ages is essential for sustainable development. This panel will address the critical issue of scaling up and sustaining access to treatment for all people living with HIV. The panel will focus on efforts to get to 90–90–90 (which calls for 90% of people living with HIV to know their status, 90% of people who know their HIV-positive status to access treatment and 90% of people on treatment to have suppressed viral loads) and ensuring access to quality and affordable medicines and commodities, including through the use of TRIPS (the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) flexibilities.
The High-Level meeting will focus attention on the importance of accelerating the response to HIV over the next five years to set the world on course to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals.
United Nations Member States are expected to adopt a Political Declaration on Ending AIDS to scale up the pace of progress and reach a set of time-bound targets.

06:30 PM - 08:30 PM        (CR.3) Addressing global health emergencies: lessons from AIDS to Ebola, Zika, and other emerging epidemics - Side-event at the High Level Meeting on HIV/AIDS.
There are striking similarities between HIV and more recent outbreaks of Ebola and Zika. At the onset of all epidemics little was known about the origin of the outbreak and the mode of transmission; mortality was high both for Ebola and AIDS. This lack of knowledge and an inadequate response lead to fear, stigma and discrimination of individuals and communities. All three epidemics have shown the need for political leadership, a sustained multisectoral approach, combining biomedical, behavioural and structural interventions and the importance of involving communities from the start. This side event will focus on lessons learned and how these can contribute to strengthening health systems and community responses, as well as long-term sustainable investments in services and research.
