In 2014, UNAIDS put forth an ambitious target known as 90–90–90, the aims of which included that, by 2020, 90% of all people living with HIV should know their HIV status, 90% of all people with diagnosed HIV should be receiving sustained ART, and 90% of all people receiving ART should have viral suppression.1 In 2016, WHO proposed a global target for the elimination of hepatitis C virus (HCV) by 2030, which included the aims for 80% of eligible people with HCV to be treated, a 90% reduction in incident infections, and a 65% reduction in liver-related mortality.2 Unfortunately, the global public health community failed to achieve the 90–90–90 HIV goals3 and are unlikely to eliminate HCV by 2030.4
