On World AIDS Day 2014, UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé calls for reaching the fast-track targets of 90-90-90 to be achieved in the next five years:
– 90% of people living with HIV knowing their HIV status;
– 90% of people who know their HIV-positive status on treatment;
– 90% of people on treatment with suppressed viral loads.
He says it is time for us to redouble our efforts, to fast-track our actions and to make sure we are quickening the pace.

Across Asia and the Pacific, transgender people face significant stigma and discrimination which prevents them from accessing the HIV and health services they need. Everyone has the right to live a full and healthy life with dignity. Please support #ZeroDiscrimination.

A monastery in Myanmar is providing accommodation and food to people living with HIV. This support helps ensure that people living with HIV who live in distant rural areas can access HIV services in Yangon, the capital of Myanmar.
In the week leading up to the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, our teams of volunteers led by UNESCO, UNAIDS, Youth Voices Count, Youth LEAD and APCOM, chalked enormous rainbows across the yards of schools around Bangkok. We called it #schoolrainbow with the aim of bringing awareness to the problem of bullying, particularly towards lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students, at schools in Thailand and around the world.
