In February 2010, UNAIDS called for an international effort to renew commitment for countries to achieve universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support.
“Countries are urged to undertake an open and inclusive consultation process—bringing together governments, development partners, civil society organizations, networks of people living with HIV and community groups to review the progress made in reaching country targets for Universal Access.” – Michel Sidibé, Executive Director, UNAIDS
UNAIDS has produced the first information note outlining the process and a time-line for the implementation of the UNAIDS UA reviews at the country and regional levels. The review aims to provide an opportunity for all stakeholders to take stock of “steps towards national targets, identify current obstacles and decide together about what needs to be done now in order to achieve universal access and ultimately the MDGs.”
