DENVER, Colo. -- Denver has become one of the first cities in the U.S. to reach a major milestone in the global effort to end the AIDS epidemic.

Denver reached the first goal of the United Nations 90-90-90 targets of having 90 percent of people living with HIV know their HIV status.

The city was the fourth U.S. city to sign on to the global effort last year to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030.

In signing the Declaration, Denver agreed to meet the following targets:

• 90 percent of people living with HIV know their HIV status.

• 90 percent of people who are HIV-positive are in care.

• 90 percent of people who are in care have suppressed viral loads.

• Zero discrimination, including stigma. 

Denver joins San Francisco, Amsterdam, Paris, and Kyiv in publishing 90-90-90 data documenting attainment of the first target.

Data is available on the Fast-Track Cities website.
