NSW HIV diagnosis and care cascade 

Sweden and Denmark are the only countries so far that have met the UNSAIDS 90-90-90 targets. Yesterday, Phillip Keen from the Kirby Institute demonstrated that NSW has also reached this goal ahead of schedule with an estimated 91.3% of NSW residents living with HIV diagnosed, 92% receiving ART and 94.5% virally suppressed. Enhanced data collection and quality methods that have been introduced in NSW could be adopted elsewhere.

NSW now aims to have 90% of people diagnosed with HIV on treatment within 6 weeks.
