Declines in new HIV infections among adults have slowed or plateaued since 2010. There are an estimated 1.9 million new infections among adults worldwide. Efforts to reach prevention targets set by the United Nations in June 2016 are seriously off track, with uneven progress being reported in some countries and worrying increases in new HIV infections in others. Globally, new infections among the key populations account for 45% of all new infections. Specific interrelated determinants (biologic, social, structural) converge to create uneven vulnerability to HIV infection. Propelled by the introduction of powerful and life-saving antiretroviral medications, the increasingly bio-medicalized global HIV response challenges us to rigorously and creatively re-imagine prevention. Moreover, there is an urgent need to radically change the mindset about the importance of prevention in the global fight against AIDS. We must bend the HIV incidence curve or run the risk of undoing the hard-fought gains made to date.
