In Focus Volume 3: Women and Girls and the 2011 Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS

Fact Sheets - Released in 2012

The United Nations General Assembly High Level Meeting (HLM) on HIV/AIDS was held in New York in 2011. As an outcome of the HLM, the 2011 Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS, UN Resolution 65/277 (hereafter referred to as the 2011 Declaration) was adopted. This issue of InFocus zooms in on what the Declaration means for the lives of women and girls in Asia and the Pacific in the context of the challenges they face and policy and programme responses needed to overcome these. This fact sheet is a tool to hold governments accountable to their commitments and targets for women and girls and to use for calling for a more women-centered response to the HIV and AIDS epidemic.
