No One Left Behind: An APPG Policy Report

Executive summary

The future of the HIV response rests heavily on whether the international community can tackle the epidemic within key populations and women and girls who are disproportionately affected. UNAIDS data suggests that more than 90% of new HIV infections in central Asia, Europe, North America, the Middle East and North Africa in 2014 were among people from key populations and their sexual partners, who accounted for 45% of new HIV infections worldwide in 2015. It shows that in lower prevalence settings in middle income countries, the majority of HIV infections occur among key populations.
