In 2001 and 2006 United Nations Member States made commitments to fighting HIV/AIDS and ensuring access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support for everyone by 2010.
 
Unprecedented progress has been made since, with over 6 million people receiving life-saving treatment.
 
However, over 9 million people globally who need treatment can’t get it and for every person starting treatment, two others become infected.
 
We need to ensure that at the next UN High Level Meeting on AIDS on 8-10 June, governments renew their commitment and set measurable targets to halt and begin to reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS by 2015. These commitments should explicitly include the respect for the human rights and needs of key populations who are most vulnerable or at risk of HIV but are often at the margins of the HIV response.
 
Governments must also strengthen their current reporting and accountability framework so that funding for the HIV response is cost-efficient and reaches those who most need it.
