UNAIDS Launches e-Consultation to Ensure AIDS Remains Central in the Post-2015 Agenda

January 24, 2013

UNAIDS is hosting an online consultation from January 21 through February 3 on the UN and Civil Society joint platform, "The World We Want," to determine a roadmap for global development after the 2015 Millennium Development Goals' target date. The publicly accessible forum is gathering diverse opinions on how to incorporate AIDS and health into post-2015 development plans, with a focus on the following three related topics: How the HIV epidemic will be relevant to the post-2015 agenda; how principles and practices from the AIDS response can inform equitable and sustainable health and development; and how decision-making, monitoring, evaluation, and accountability can be reformed in efforts to end the HIV epidemic.

Nine international experts on HIV, human rights, health, and development will moderate the e-consultation and synthesize the responses in a report that will inform international planning efforts, including the High-Level Health Thematic Meeting to be held in Botswana March 5–6, and the UNAIDS-Lancet Post-2015 Commission.

The HIV epidemic -- both a cause and a result of inequality and social injustice -- is still a leading cause of death globally. As the international community negotiates the next global development agenda, the community can benefit from pioneering AIDS efforts to change health and development efforts.

The e-consultation welcomes views from all people via the "Health in the Post-2015 Development Agenda" webpage at www.worldwewant2015.org/health.
