In many ways, 2007 was a year of consolidation: a time to build on past achievements and focus on delivering better results for more people. During the year the Committee of Cosponsoring Organizations, which serves as the standing committee of UNAIDS’ 10 cosponsors, was chaired by the World Food Programme and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. The main aim of the Joint Programme in 2007 was to support countries’ efforts to realize their 2006 commitments in the United Nations General Assembly to scale up towards universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support.

UNAIDS
In some countries, criminal law is being applied to those who transmit or expose others to HIV infection. There are no data indicating that the broad application of criminal law to HIV transmission will achieve either criminal justice or prevent HIV transmission. Rather, such application risks undermining public health and human rights. Because of these concerns, UNAIDS urges governments to limit criminalization to cases of intentional transmission, i.e. where a person knows his or her HIV positive status, acts with the intention to transmit HIV, and does in fact transmit it.

UNAIDS
The report documents considerable progress in many countries in addressing their national epidemics. A six fold increase in financing for HIV programmes in low– and middle–income countries 2001–2007 is beginning to bear fruit, as gains in lowering the number of AIDS deaths and preventing new infections are apparent in many countries. Progress remainsuneven, however, and the epidemic’s future is still uncertain, underscoring the need for intensified action to move towards universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support.
