The Global Plan
World leaders gathered in New York in June for the 2011 United Nations High Level Meeting on AIDS. At the meeting they launched the Global Plan Towards the Elimination of New HIV Infections Among Children by 2015 and Keeping Their Mothers Alive. It provides the foundation for a country-led movement towards the elimination of new HIV infections among children and keeping their mothers alive.
The Global Plan has been developed through a consultative process by a high level Global Task Team convened by UNAIDS and co-chaired by UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé and United States Global AIDS Coordinator Ambassador Eric Goosby. It brought together 25 countries and 30 civil society, private sector, networks of people living with HIV and international organizations to chart a roadmap to achieve the goal of the Global Plan by 2015.
The goal of the Global Plan is to move towards eliminating new HIV infections among children and keeping their mothers alive. In reaching for this goal, two Global Targets are outlined in the Plan:
Global Target 1: Reduce the number of new childhood HIV infections by 90%.
Global Target 2: Reduce the number of HIV-related maternal deaths by 50%.
In order to ensure that these Global Targets are met, the Global Plan outlines six key conditions that must be met:
The plan also includes a detailed timetable for action at community, national, regional and global levels to ensure rapid progress towards elimination of new HIV infections among children by 2015 and keeping their mothers alive.
