Country Progress Report - Cook Islands: Global AIDS Monitoring Report 2018

Publications - Released in 2018

At the 2011 United Nations General Assembly High-Level Meeting on AIDS that took place in June in New York, Member States adopted a new Political Declaration which contained new targets to effectively respond to the AIDS epidemic. The 2011 Political Declaration mandates UNAIDS to support countries in reporting back on progress made towards achieving the new commitments. It also provides for the UN Secretary-General to report regularly to the General Assembly on progress achieved in realizing these commitments.

The preparation of the 2017 Global AIDS Progress Report (GAPR) for the Cook Islands was facilitated and compiled by the Ministry of Health, with relevant government ministries, non-government organizations and civil society involved in the response to HIV/AIDS and STIs. Collection of data for this report was carried out in consultation with ministry of health staff and various stakeholders throughout 2017. Data were collated and analysed by MOH for the completion of this report.
