Fast-Track Cities London Leadership Group
What is the Fast-Track Cities London Leadership Group?
The Fast Track Cities London Leadership Group brings together statutory organisations; London Councils, Public Health England, Greater London Authority, Healthy London Partnership and NHS England (London), along with representatives from HIV NGOs (non governmental organisations) and HIV community representatives.
What has the group done so far?
The group has worked in partnership with the HIV community to develop the London Fast-Track Cities roadmap designed to show how we work together as a city to get to zero new HIV infections, zero deaths and zero stigma before 2030. The overarching aim is to improve the health, wellbeing and lives of people living with HIV in London.
What are we aiming to achieve?
Public Health data indicates that in London as many as 95% of people with HIV have been diagnosed, 98% of these are receiving treatment and 97% have undetectable viral loads.
However, London’s ambition is to go much further. We want to become the first global city to meet the United Nation’s AIDS target of ‘Getting to Zero’.
The next step will be reaching the final 5% who are undiagnosed, ending all HIV transmissions, ending HIV stigma, ending preventable deaths from HIV-related causes, and improving the health, quality of life and well-being of people living with HIV in the capital.
