New report underlines the threat to universal access to HIV prevention, treatment and care due to a slow-down in treatment scale-up and waning political will

AIDS 2010 took place in Vienna in July 2010 at a critical moment in the push for expanded access to HIV services.

Dialogue on universal access during AIDS 2010 focused on two core issues: securing the required resources from international donors and national governments; and making more effective and efficient use of available resources. A key theme among speakers was the challenging economic climate, with principal donors including PEPFAR, the World Bank, UNITAID, and the Global Fund experiencing funding reductions or failing to increase funding in line w
