Fast Track Cities Initiative

In 2019, Fulton County Board of Commissioners entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to become a partner of the Fast Track Cities Initiative. Through this partnership, Fulton County shares information and best practices with other local governments around the globe who are working to prevent new cases of HIV and ensure access to care for those living with HIV today. 

From the Fast Track Cities Initiative Website:

The Fast-Track Cities initiative is a global partnership between cities and municipalities around the world and four core partners – the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC), the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), and the City of Paris.

Launched on World AIDS Day 2014, the network has grown to include more than 300 cities and municipalities that are committed to attain the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets by 2020: 90% of all people living with HIV will know their HIV status; 90% of all people with diagnosed HIV infection will receive sustained antiretroviral therapy (ART); and 90% of all HIV-diagnosed people receiving sustained ART will achieve viral suppression. Achieving zero stigma is the initiative’s fourth, but no less important, target.
