Pivotal moments are points when a decision must be made, a clear path chosen. These pivotal moments have profound, long-term consequences. Today, as the 2015 deadline draws near for global targets set forth in the United Nations 2011 Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS, the world faces such a pivotal moment. Making the right choice at this historic crossroads will help determine the future course of the HIV pandemic.
A critical 1000 days
Roughly 1000 days remain to reach the global target of 15 million people on antiretroviral therapy by 2015. In a growing number of countries, the foundations for ending the AIDS epidemic are being established by scaling up HIV treatment combined with expanding access to other essential programmatic activities. At the end of 2012, 9.7 million people accessed antiretroviral therapy in resource-limited settings (Figure 1). Today, more than 4 million people are alive because the global community opted more than a decade ago, against considerable odds, to commit to introducing treatment worldwide.

For the rst time since the beginning o the AIDSepidemic, we have an historic opportunity to lay the groundwork to achieve zero new inections,zero discrimination, and zero AIDS-relateddeaths. One o the clearest lessons in global healthis that victory can only be achieved through activepartnership. For us to win, it is essential that wemove together to support countries to achievetheir goals. Getting to zero requires commitment,innovation, sound science, and community-centered strategies. A determination to embraceand respect human rights is critical i we are toreach those most vulnerable to HIV inection.As we now have the tools to achieve universalaccess to HIV testing and treatment, we mustunite around the principle that every person whoneeds HIV treatment should receive it. By strategically ocusing HIV treatment and otherproven prevention tools on the key geographicsettings and populations where rates o transmission and unmet need or HIV servicesare high, we can signicantly bend downwardthe rate o new inections.
