Interactive Multi-Stakeholder Hearing as part of the preparatory process for the 2021 High-level meeting on HIV/AIDS (8-9-10 June 2021)

The interactive multi-stakeholder hearing will provide all relevant stakeholders with an opportunity to contribute to the ongoing HLM preparations through interactive panel discussions. The hearing aims to support Member States with the preparatory process, including to inform the negotiations of the HLM declaration, through an interactive dialogue with communities, civil society and other key stakeholders. During the panel discussions, civil society representatives and other stakeholders are expected to share their views and experiences from their work on the ground.

The hearing aims to demonstrate the strength, diversity and commitment of communities, civil society and other stakeholders in the response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic and to propose transformative actions that will make it possible to upend intersecting inequalities that are preventing progress to achieving zero new HIV infections, zero AIDS-related deaths and zero discrimination, and ending AIDS as a public health threat by 2030.

  • In This Story: HIV

    The human immunodeficiency viruses (HIV) are two species of Lentivirus (a subgroup of retrovirus) that infect humans. Over time, they cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), a condition in which progressive failure of the immune system allows life-threatening opportunistic infections and cancers to thrive.

    Without treatment, average survival time after infection with HIV is estimated to be 9 to 11 years, depending on the HIV subtype. In most cases, HIV is a sexually transmitted infection and occurs by contact with or transfer of blood, pre-ejaculate, semen, and vaginal fluids. Research has shown (for both same-sex and opposite-sex couples) that HIV is untransmittable through condomless sexual intercourse if the HIV-positive partner has a consistently undetectable viral load.

    Non-sexual transmission can occur from an infected mother to her infant during pregnancy, during childbirth by exposure to her blood or vaginal fluid, and through breast milk. Within these bodily fluids, HIV is present as both free virus particles and virus within infected immune cells.
