Good news about the fight against HIV: the ambitious 90-90-90 target is achievable!

MSF has published the results of a monitoring study of its community-based HIV and TB project in Eshowe, KwaZulu-Natal, eastern South Africa.  

WHAT IS THIS STUDY ABOUT? The results of the MSF study show that the project has reached its UNAIDS target of 90-90-90, one year ahead of the 2020 deadline, resulting in 90-94-95, which means:  

  • 90% of people with HIV know their HIV status
  • 94% of those tested are on antiretroviral treatment
  • 95% have a suppressed viral load

These results support MSF's view that community-based interventions can better reach and support more people living with HIV who do not have access to conventional health services, which is essential to fighting the HIV epidemic.
