In 2019, the Fast-Track Cities London Leadership Group came together to decide on a collective plan of action to get London to the United Nations’ getting to zero goals.
We wanted to bring everyone together to use existing knowledge, experience and assets to speed up London’s HIV response.
The group developed the Fast-Track Cities London Roadmap to Zero, which shows how we work together as a city to get to zero new HIV infections, zero deaths and zero stigma before 2030. The aim is to improve the health, well-being and lives of people living with HIV in London.
