This report by the UN Secretary-General on implementation of the Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS and the Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS was released on March 28, 2011.
The report states,
"The year 2011 marks 30 years of AIDS. In that time, AIDS has claimed more than 25 million lives and more than 60 million people have become infected with HIV. Still, each day, more than 7000 people are newly infected with the virus, including 1000 children. No country has escaped the devastation of this truly global epidemic.
...We must take the bold decisions that will dramatically reshape the AIDS response to reach zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths. This requires rejuvenated political commitment for more focused, efficient and sustainable responses. It requires recognition that non-discrimination, pragmatism and compassion will yield benefits not only for the HIV response but also across health, development and human rights priorities."
