As a signatory to the SDGs, Indonesia has made a national commitment to achieving the SDGs which include the commitment to End AIDS by 2030. UNAIDS’s Fast Track approach was launched as a strategy for accelerating the response, and ensuring achievement of the SDGs. The Fast Track approach sets ambitious targets for 2020: 90% of people living with HIV know their HIV status; 90% of people who know their HIV-positive status are on treatment; 90% of people on treatment have suppressed viral loads; and Zero discrimination.
In the last four years, Indonesia has fittingly launched polices that are designed to massively accelerate and expand access to HIV prevention, testing and treatment services for key populations and pregnant women, among others, and implement high-impact interventions in prioritised geographies. Three cities are implementing city-led responses under the ASEAN Cities Getting to Zero initiative, and the Governor of Jakarta has signed the Paris Declaration, a global commitment to Fast Track local responses in order to generate national and global impact.
Through UNAIDS Country Office Indonesia, MAC AIDS Foundation has generously provided a financial grant in support of Jakarta Fast Track City to end AIDS by 2030. The grant will be implemented in collaboration with partners already working in DKI Jakarta with the aim to showcase city leadership, demonstrate evidence-based planning, promote best practices & horizontal learning, encourage innovation in service delivery, and strengthen the management and sustainability of the local AIDS response.
