“We will end AIDS if we meet the 90–90–90 targets, but there will be an epidemic rebound if we don’t. Real action at the community level will be key to reaching 90–90–90. By recruiting at least 2 million new community health workers, the AIDS response can generate dividends beyond the AIDS epidemic.”—Badara Samb, Chief, Office of Special Initiatives, UNAIDS
