Overview

The World Health Organization (WHO) is committed to ensuring that the great success of HIV treatment scale-up is not threatened by HIV drug resistance (HIVDR). Preventing HIVDR is an important part of meeting the 90-90-90 targets by the year 2020.

The development of a five-year plan reflects a global consensus that HIVDR in lower and middle-income countries requires a coordinated and resourced response. The Global Action Plan is an agreement by key partners about their respective roles in preventing, monitoring, and responding to HIVDR.
