IAS-Lancet Commission Report

Lancet Commission Report”This week, we publish a new International AIDS Society (IAS)–Lancet Commission report: Advancing global health and strengthening the HIV response in the era of the Sustainable Development Goals.1

IAS–Lancet Commission Report

Under the leadership of past IAS President, Chris Beyrer, and current IAS President, Linda-Gail Bekker, this Commission engaged an international group of experts in HIV and across other global health domains to examine the future of the AIDS response in the context of a more integrated global health and sustainable development agenda.”

”The Commission has several key findings. First, the HIV/AIDS community made a serious error by pursuing “the end of AIDS” message. As the Commission shows so clearly, the world is not on track to end AIDS. Although at the peak of the epidemic the incidence of HIV infections began to decrease and AIDS-related mortality fell, there has been no meaningful progress in reducing new infections during the past decade.”
