Global Forum of AIDS-Free Cities: A Meeting of Politicians and Medical Experts to Work on the Future of AIDS



Politicians and medical experts from all over the world are meeting today in London to develop plans for a joint fight against HIV to create a future free of AIDS.

The Global Forum of AIDS-Free Cities at The Conduit, Mayfair, is the culmination of the Evening Standard, The Independent and the Elton John Aids Campaign.

The main attention will be paid to the UN goals “90-90-90”, which are aimed at informing at least 90 percent of people with HIV about their status, receiving 90 percent of them in treatment and 90 percent – suppressing the virus.

Health Minister Matt Hancock and Secretary of State for International Development Penny Mordaunt and host delegates, including civilian leaders from six key cities that are focused on addressing AIDS, in Kiev, Delhi, Atlanta, Maputo, Nairobi and London.
