The context is urgent. In less than 100 days, the 2016 United Nations General Assembly High-Level Meeting on Ending AIDS will take place in New York (6-10 June). The Outcome Document which will be agreed by governments will be of critical importance to accelerate the response to HIV over the next five years, and set the world on course to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Advancing combination prevention follows on from the 2015 UNAIDS reference paper, Fast Tracking Combination Prevention.
The brief covers:
- why it is important to act now,
- why a combination prevention approach is so vital, and
- gives the ‘A-B-C’ of what countries need to do – from calling on prevention programmes to be grounded in evidence, to advocating for national plans to achieve scale and coverage, and finally, demanding funds for HIV prevention, including for community-led responses.
Four community-led case studies are included – focused on harm reduction in Kenya, work with girls and young women in Uganda, improving health services for MSM in Paraguay, and prevention among sex workers in India.

Services for migrants and refugees from Ukraine – HIV/TB care with a focus on key populations
Due to the increasing flows of refugees from Ukraine because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EECA Regional Platform created a spreadsheet to fill contacts details of face-to-face and online services for refugees and migrants (with a focus on HIV/TB care and key population groups).
If you provide such services or know verified providers, please fill out the spreadsheet at your earliest convenience, and, please, update it as more verified information is available. These can be services for national citizens if they are also accessible to international migrants and refugees.
