Global health sector strategy on Sexually Transmitted Infections, 2016-2021: Towards Ending STIs

World Health Organization (WHO), (2016)

The strategy, once adopted, and its implementation will contribute to a radical decline in new sexually transmitted infections and in deaths related to such infections (including still births and cervical cancer), while improving individual health, men’s and women’s sexual health, and the well-being of all people. It will guide efforts to: accelerate and focus comprehensive prevention efforts through scaling up evidence-based combined behavioural, biomedical and structural approaches; facilitate people’s access to information on their sexually transmitted infection status; improve access to treatment and comprehensive long-term care when needed; and challenge pervasive stigmatization and discrimination. The strategy promotes a people-centred approach, grounded in principles of human rights, gender equality and health equity.

Stratégie mondiale du secteur de la santé contre les infections sexuellement transmissibles 2016-2021: Vers l'élimination des IST

Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS), (2016)

Une fois adoptée et mise en œuvre, la stratégie contribuera à réduire sensiblement les nouvelles infections sexuellement transmissibles et les décès connexes (ainsi que les mortinatalités et le cancer du col de l’utérus), tout en améliorant la santé individuelle, la santé sexuelle des hommes et des femmes, et le bien-être de tous. Elle va orienter les efforts visant à : accélérer et cibler l’essentiel des actions de prévention en renforçant des approches à la fois comportementales, biomédicales et structurelles ; faciliter l’accès individuel à l’information concernant le statut personnel vis-à-vis des infections sexuellement transmissibles ; améliorer l’accès au traitement et à l’éventail complet des soins de longue durée, le cas échéant ; et combattre la stigmatisation et la discrimination généralisées. Le projet de stratégie encourage une démarche centrée sur la personne et fondée sur les principes des droits fondamentaux, de l’égalité entre les sexes et de l’équité en santé.

Turning point for Africa

Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), (2018)

An historic opportunity to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030 and launch a new era of sustainability
A decade of progress has inspired the once unthinkable—that the AIDS epidemic can be ended as a public health threat. The global community has embraced the bold idea to end the AIDS epidemic as a target of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Governments from around the world have committed to a Fast-Track agenda and a set of ambitious but attainable milestones to be achieved by 2020 in order to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030, as set out in the United Nations General Assembly Political Declaration on Ending AIDS. Regular reporting through UNAIDS reinforces accountability for results.

The 90-90-90 Compendium. Vol. 4

King, Judith (Ed.), Eds.: Health System Trust, (2018)

Vol. 4: Healthy me, healthy us: A guide for community members about good health and staying healthy with chronic illness
Diseases like HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis (TB), high blood pressure (‘high-high’) and diabetes (‘sugar’) can make us very ill, and if we don’t get treatment, we can die from these illnesses.
South Africa has adopted the 90-90-90 principles for these diseases. This means that if 90% (nine out of 10 people) of people with HIV and TB know their status, get treated and stay on treatment, this will help prevent the spread of the diseases and keep people healthy.
