St. Louis Fast-Track on World AIDS Day 2019

On December 1, 2019, World AIDS (Awareness) Day, St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson signed the Fast-Track Cities Paris Declaration to end the AIDS epidemic in our city and county by 2030.

“The Fast-Track Cities Paris Declaration is a commitment by cities to reach 90-90-90 targets:

· 90% of people living with HIV knowing their HIV status,

· 90% of people who know their HIV-positive status accessing treatment, and

· 90% of people on treatment having suppressed viral loads.

As of December 31, 2017, 6,230 people were living with HIV disease (HIV/AIDS) in the St. Louis region. More than 3,400 of those persons (55%) live in the City of St. Louis, and more than 2,300 (37%) live in St. Louis County. “
