The UN Secretary General issued a report on progress in addressing HIV. The report is public and will inform government dialogues and negotiations on the Political Declaration. This Report released on the 1st of April is the advance unedited version in English, with an official report in six languages coming out on 29 April.
The release of this report is one of the several important events to take place prior to The UN High-Level Meeting on AIDS.
The UN High-Level Meeting on AIDS (HLM) will be held 8-10 June. Through the HLM the international community can demonstrate commitment to accelerating the HIV response with the goal of ending the AIDS epidemic.
In advance of the meeting there is an important opportunity to encourage governments to develop an HLM Political Declaration with new and bold commitments for treatment and prevention scale up, human rights, community engagement, and increased financing.
