This Commission addresses current challenges for research, practice, and policy that they selected because they are common and important global health priorities, or because new evidence is emerging in the area. A new set of global health sector strategies for HIV infection, viral hepatitis, and STIs focuses on five key strategic directions: knowing the epidemic, service coverage, quality of services, adequate financing, and innovation. These key strategic directions highlight the essential interventions common to the three strategies on HIV infection, viral hepatitis, and STIs: elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV infection, syphilis, and hepatitis B virus infection; vaccination against HPV and hepatitis B virus; and antimicrobial resistance surveillance.
