2021 High-level Meeting on HIV- priorities for people affected by HIV and hepatitis
At the upcoming United Nations High-Level Meeting on HIV, due to take place from 8-10 June 2021, UN Member States will negotiate a UN General Assembly Political Declaration on ending AIDS, which is expected to build on previous declarations in 2001, 2006, 2011, and 2016.
Millions of people worldwide live with both HIV and viral hepatitis. HIV and viral hepatitis disproportionately affect the same communities, with many of the populations at risk from HIV also at risk from hepatitis, including sex workers, migrants, men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs (PWID), and prisoners. We cannot protect these populations against HIV and leave the same people with the burden of viral hepatitis. The ending of HIV as a public health threat cannot be achieved without the elimination of viral hepatitis.
The inclusion of priorities for people and the communities affected by HIV and viral hepatitis needs to be included within the Political Declaration coming out of the High-Level Meeting.
