The 2011 UN “Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS: Intensifying our Efforts to Eliminate HIV/AIDS” builds on two previous political declarations: the 2001 Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS and the 2006 Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS.   The 2011 Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS recognizes the urgent need to achieve the Millenium Development Goals (MDG) targets, particularly MDG 6 aimed at halting and reversing the HIV epidemic by 2015. It  includes decisions and targets to be reached by 2015 aimed at; reducing by half the sexual transmission of HIV and HIV infection among people who inject drugs; increasing the number of people on treatment to 15 million; halving tuberculosis-related deaths in people living with HIV; eliminating new HIV infections among children; increasing resources for HIV in low and middle income countries; strengthening integration of HIV with health and development sectors; eliminating stigma and discrimination and travel restrictions; and addressing gender inequalities. This report presents the country’s progress towards meeting the ten targets of the Declaration. The report provides a detailed analysis of the country’s progress in meeting the ‘Ten Targets’ of the Political Declaration, with recommendations.  The recommendations will guide the country in ensuring that the targets are met. Its development is based on a wide stakeholder consultation involving government, civil society, private sector, multilateral and bilateral partners.
