Fast-Track Cities London Leadership Group
Who is on the London Leadership Group?
The Fast-Track Cities initiative Leadership Group is made up of reps from these areas:
- The four Fast-Track Cities signatories (the Mayor of London, Public Health England, NHS England and London Councils)
- The London key opinion leader for International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC)
- Clinical Commissioning Groups and Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships
- Clinicians with HIV expertise and primary care doctors
- Voluntary and community organisations with HIV expertise
- People with lived experience of HIV
- The London HIV Prevention Programme
- Directors of Public Health
- Healthy London Partnership as the programme management body
What has the group done so far?
The group has worked with the HIV community to develop the London Fast-Track Cities roadmap, which shows how we work together as a city to get to zero new HIV infections, zero deaths and zero stigma before 2030. The aim is to improve the health, well-being and lives of people living with HIV in London.
What do we want to achieve?
Public Health data shows that in London as many as 95 per cent of people with HIV have been diagnosed, 98 per cent of these are receiving treatment and 97 percent have their HIV suppressed.
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 steps will be reaching the final 5 per cent 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.
