Abstract

This report by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), published in October 2011, briefly discusses the new 2011 Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS targets endorsed by all UN Member States and outlines the increased commitment of UNAIDS to supporting individual countries in the production of comprehensive progress reports. The new targets contained in the 2011 Political Declaration aim to reduce sexual transmission of HIV and HIV infection among injecting drug users by half, to increase the number of people receiving treatment to 15 million, to halve tuberculosis-related deaths in people with HIV and to eliminate new HIV infections in children by 2015. The last target would mean that all infected pregnant women would be identified and treated. The main body of the report presents guidelines to help National AIDS programmes and their partners to use core indicators to measure and report their progress towards achieving these new targets. It is hoped that the guidelines will help countries to assess their current response to HIV/AIDS, to encourage the integration of core indicators within ongoing monitoring and evaluation programmes, and to ensure consistency and transparency of reporting among all UN Member States.
