HIV/AIDS: Meeting Unmet Needs in Treatment and Prevention 

organized in observance of World AIDS Day 
 

Tuesday, 5 December 2023 Trusteeship Council, UNHQ

3:00 - 5:00 p.m., EST

Event Description

As world leaders continue to strategize on how to build back better from the impacts of the COVID-19, it is imperative that we do not let short- term post pandemic measures prevent us from addressing the longer-term needs in treatment and prevention of HIV/ AIDS.

Over the past two and a half years, the colliding AIDS and COVID-19 pandemics—along with economic and humanitarian crises—have placed the global HIV response under increasing threat.

In 2021, 38.4 million people worldwide were living with HIV. While there has been a decline in the number of individuals acquiring HIV globally, some regions and population groups have experienced significant increases in cases in recent years. These increases have also come at a time of turmoil with the COVID-19 pandemic alongside various other economic and humanitarian crises exacerbating the difficulties of fighting HIV/AIDS.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted HIV care delivery globally and where resources and internet connection are available, caregivers have moved to telemedicine (video, telephone visits) to maintain HIV treatment adherence and care engagement. This, however, has not been the case in many countries around the world. These disruptions have emphasized the importance of the global health response to HIV.

Disproportionate infection rates among vulnerable populations and particularly those in developing countries, have in turn, reduced some individuals’ ability to receive treatment or prevention resources. Some of the biggest obstacles to fighting the HIV pandemic that have been identified are the number of people who do not know they are infected, the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS, the lack of access to affordable testing, treatment, and prevention resources, and getting countries to put significant effort and financing into meeting the needs of those at risk.

The event brings together representatives from civil society, health practitioners, specialists, and the UN system at the forefront of meeting the unmet needs of those with HIV/AIDS and those who could be potentially exposed. Discussion will highlight the current state of HIV/AIDS globally, key obstacles that have been preventing those who need care from getting it, and how to overcome those obstacles and meet the treatment and prevention needs of those living with or potentially exposed to HIV on an individual, community, state, and global level. Featured speakers will share their experiences and give insight into the session theme. 

What is required:

·        Resilient recovery from the impacts of the COVID-19 will not be possible without conscious efforts to boost global resilience on all fronts: social, economic, scientific, innovative and technological.

·        It is indeed imperative to take strategically calculated and measurable collective actions to support the efforts of developing countries in special situations.

·        Support should be in the form of partnerships, research and development.

Event Objectives:

The event is intended to provide a platform for the exchange of views, sharing of experiences, and setting shared goals and, indeed targets towards addressing the effects of meeting unmet needs in the treatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS, and achieving the targets of the 2039 Agenda for Sustainable Development; particularly those related to Health.

Accordingly, the event is expected to provide a platform for member states to:

·        Highlight challenges that those in developing countries face.

·        Take stick of progress made and share experiences.

·        Articulate viable solutions to the effects on the gaps on women and girls in developing countries and in vulnerable situations, and how to address these challenges; and

·        Reflect on how to ensure that the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic and the increasing frequency of inadequate needs in treatment and prevention do not result in leaving women and girls behind in the global efforts to achieve the 2030 Agenda  , Africa Agenda 2063 and other regional development agendas.
 

Expected Outcomes:

·        It is expected that the side event would:

·        Deepen dialogue among member states, representatives of developing countries; HIV/AIDS organizations, critical stakeholders, and development partners on how to maintain resilience to the unmet needs of treatment and prevention in HIV/AIDS;

·        Synthesize views expressed by participants and present the key findings as possible policy recommendations for mitigating the unmet needs in HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention in the socioeconomic live wires of communities globally


Event Scenario

 The event is intended to provide a platform for the exchange of views, sharing of experiences, and setting shared goals and, indeed targets towards addressing the effects of meeting unmet needs in the treatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS, and achieving the targets of the 2039 Agenda for Sustainable Development; particularly those related to Health.
