In 2015, leaders from 193 countries agreed to the Sustainable Development Goals—the SDGs. These were big, bold objectives we wanted to achieve by 2030, everything from ending poverty to achieving gender equality. And each year, this report attempts to answer the question, “How is the world doing?” We want people to grasp what the numbers say about the trajectory of human progress.
Look what happened with HIV.
Before the Sustainable Development Goals, there were the Millennium Development Goals—the MDGs—and one was reversing the spread of HIV/AIDS. This seemed impossible at the time, but thanks to the hard work and ingenuity of a coalition of advocates, governments, and others, we rapidly accelerated progress. From 2000 to 2020, we saw a nearly 60% reduction in yearly deaths.
We believe it’s possible that one day we will look back at the data in this report the same way we look at the AIDS data from the turn of the millennium: in disbelief at how quickly and dramatically things turned around.
