HIV/AIDS

Since the beginning of the HIV epidemic, the Region of the Americas has contributed with a public health and human rights approach to the global response. In September 2016, Member States of the Pan American Health Organization approved the Plan of Action for the Prevention and Control of HIV and Sexually Transmitted Infections 2016 -2021. This Plan aims to promote an accelerated, focused, more effective, innovative and sustainable response, paving the way towards the goal of ending the epidemics of AIDS and STIs as public health problems in the Region of the Americas by 2030.
