Despite commitments to the 90-90-90 targets, many people remain unaware of their HIV status and in many settings ART coverage remains low. In particular, key populations face structural and other barriers when accessing HIV testing and treatment services which results in suboptimal coverage of these services. This session will take participants on a journey across the HIV care cascade highlighting key perspectives and programme examples. A series of short presentations will be preceded by an opening panel discussion and conclude with a dialogue among the chairs and stakeholders on their thoughts for the way forward.
