Opening of the 34th UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board
I want to thank the 181 United Nations Member States who submitted global AIDS response progress reports to UNAIDS this year.7 The evidence of progress is bold and inspiring. For example, scaled up efforts to prevent new HIV infections among children are showing remarkable results, with new HIV infections among children continuing to decline. However, we need to ramp up efforts to reach the goals set out in UNAIDS and partners’ Global plan towards the elimination of new HIV infections among children by 2015 and keeping their mothers alive by fully integrating HIV into maternal and child health services.
