High level policy, technical and programmatic advice to civil society and strategic support to community mobilization, through greater and meaningful involvement of people living with HIV and key populations (GIPA) and civil society engagement, are both human rights and public health imperatives, as people living with HIV and other member of civil society will be, and should be, the engines of health and social change efforts in their countries. Objectives: Reinforce and reignite the engagement and leadership in the AIDS response of people living with HIV, women and key populations Ensure the HIV response has a powerful human face and is an engine for community mobilization for prevention, treatment and HIV-related social justice Provide global leadership, advocacy, strategic information and programme coherence on human rights, gender equality, GIPA, community mobilization and civil society leadership towards achievement of the 10 goals of the 2011 Political Declaration and Fast-Track the response on the road to ending AIDS by 2030 Support excellence in national efforts to achieve HIV-related human rights, gender and GIPA goals through mobilization of leaders in government and civil society on law, gender equality, civic and social action, and faith.

Much of the work that lies ahead to implement a Fast-Track approach to make progress in the HIV response - including broadening the reach of services, supporting retention in care, increasing demand, monitoring quality, advancing human rights and combatting stigma and discrimination - can only be achieved with a strong community voice and presence.
