Geneva: UNAIDS, 2012. 9 p.
In June 2011, world leaders unanimously adopted the UN General Assembly Political Declaration on AIDS that laid out ambitious targets for the global HIV response. While the International Organisation of La Francophonie (IOF) has made considerable progress towards these targets, its member countries are characterized by marked variations in access to treatment and prevention services as well as inadequate funding from both international and domestic sources. This document seeks to motivate the IOP member states to readdress the funding imbalances that hamper their efforts to address the HIV epidemic. Furthermore, the article urges the member states to take action , especially in low- and middle-income francophone countries in sub-Saharan Africa, by working towards the 2011 goals that were laid out.
