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

ith needs. The World Bank estimated that the cumulative effect of a diminished scale-up effort over five years would be approximately ten million deaths and 14 million newly infected individuals.

The replenishment of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria was of major concern to conference delegates, as political leaders and activists alike advocated for the full replenishment of the Fund in the October 2010 Replenishment Meeting. Recognised by the international community as an effective mechanism through which to disburse large amounts of resources rapidly, the replenishment of the Global Fund is vital to reaching both the health related MDGs and universal access by 2015. These concerns have since been proved right, with donors pledging only US $11.7 billion earlier this month - less than the lowest of the three financing scenarios envisaged by the Global Fund. This amount will feasibly only allow for the continuation of funding of existing programmes, with new programmes being funded at significantly lower levels than in recent years.

The question of whether or not the international AIDS community should concentrate on doing more with fewer resources, or whether it should continue to advocate for increased resources to fight HIV and AIDS was heavily debated at the conference, in particular in light of the new WHO treatment guidelines as well as recent advances in prevention and treatment technologies. While the push for greater efficiencies is imperative, there was unquestionable consensus that efficiencies alone cannot make up for the large gap in needed resources.

"UNAIDS used AIDS 2010 to launch the new Treatment 2.0 platform which emphasizes the prevention of new HIV infections in a way which is smarter, faster and better. Treatment 2.0 is rooted in the notion that HIV infections can be cut by up to one-third if there is a significant change in how ARVs are provided. This means increased coverage, which in turn means more re
