There are promising new strategies towards global HIV treatment that are developed by researchers in high-burdened developing countries.

It has been found out that the UNAIDS fast track strategy seeks to ensure that 90% of HIV-positive people know their status, 90% are able to access antiretroviral treatment (ART), and 90% of those on treatment attain viral suppression, by the year 2020. Studies on treatment expansion in several southern and East African countries presented at AIDS 2016 provide new insights on how to achieve the 90-90-90 objectives, while also identifying some critical obstacles to overcome.
