Fast-Track Cities Initiative for the Acceleration of HIV AIDS Control in Jakarta

UNAIDS Indonesia Country Office (
United Nations / Multilateral body

    The Fast-Track Cities Initiative started as a global partnership between the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC), the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), the City of Paris, and cities across the world. Since its launch on World AIDS Day 2014 in Paris, more than 350 cities from every region of the world have joined the Initiative by signing the Paris Declaration on Fast-Track Cities Ending the AIDS Epidemic, pledging to accelerate their AIDS responses, to reach ambitious targets, to forge strategic partnership and to address significant disparities in access to services, social justice and economic opportunity. In 2015, the governor of Jakarta signed the Paris Declaration and formally urged the mayors of the five Jakarta municipalities to develop their workplans and budgets in line with the Fast-Track Targets. Jakarta is the capital of Indonesia and its largest city, with more than 10 million inhabitants. Of those, an estimated 66 000 are living with HIV. This represents 12% of the national HIV burden, making Jakarta the heart of Indonesia’s HIV epidemic. Current data for Jakarta suggest that around 98% of people living with HIV know their status, but only 43% of those are on treatment. The overall aim of the project is to provide essential technical support over a five-year period to 15 priority high-burden cities, including Jakarta, to accelerate their HIV responses towards achieving ambitious Fast-Track targets and to deliver on the commitments of the Paris Declaration. The implementation of activities in Jakarta is coordinated by the UNAIDS Country Office Indonesia and the IAPAC Jakarta City Programme Officers, in close collaboration with local and national stakeholders and partners, including the Jakarta Provincial Health Office and Ministry of Health. Yearly workplans are developed in the context of Jakarta specific epidemics and needs in order to fill the gap, in agreement with city health authorities and other stakeholders. Jakarta’s successes from FTC initiative show how effective working with a broad range of city and non-city partners can be. The strength of the city’s HIV response lies in working with communities and harnessing community expertise to reach more people with better services; empowering stakeholders to use information; and building collaboration among the city, community and civil society partners.

    Expected Impact

    The Fast Track Cities initiative contributes to the achievement of SDG no. 3, related with Health and wellbeing. It will also help to accelerate the achievement of the Fast Track target (95-95-95) to reduce the new HIV infections, AIDS related deaths and stigma and discrimination (10-10-10). City and municipal governments can play an important role in curbing the national rate of the new HIV infection and AIDS related deaths. For example, in the spirit of reaching out to the younger generation, in 2018 UNAIDS Indonesia developed "Tanya Marlo", a chat robot (chatbot) based on Artificial Intelligence, which is designed for conversations about HIV and AIDS. Tanya Marlo is connected to the LINE chat messaging app. The impact of the Tanya Marlo platform is continuously measured with a monthly monitoring report, which recaps the reach of the campaigns on all the social media platforms. The monthly monitoring report is able to provide insights into what topics and issues are most frequently sought after by the public. As of February 2022, Marlo campaign reaches more than 17,800 users in all platforms. In addition to this, the Tanya Marlo platform also refers users to counselling services that link them to access services. The counselling, provided by the network of PLHIV, is also monitored regularly and saw a decline due to Covid-19 pandemic decreasing people’s willingness to visit health facilities.
