This report presents a global overview of the HIV epidemic amongst children and adolescents, and of the key challenges and opportunities for progress. It highlights efforts made to achieve high coverage of quality HIV prevention, treatment and care services, most recently against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has disrupted HIV programming and underscored the vulnerability of children and families living with or at risk of HIV. The report also offers a response to the decisions of the forty-fifth and forty-sixth Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) Program Coordinating Board meetings. The report reveals that the HIV response for children stands at an important juncture. At the global level, despite the gains made at the start of the last decade, the super-fast-track targets for children and adolescents remain unmet. Several promising accomplishments, however, show that real gains, and lasting success, are possible with will, resources and innovative approaches. It is a useful resource for policy makers.
