Launch of UNAIDS new report on AIDS – Global commitment, local action



As the world prepares to mark the 40th anniversary of the first reported cases of AIDS on 5 June, UNAIDS will be releasing a new report outlining the latest data and trends in the HIV pandemic.

The report will detail the main challenges still to be overcome to end AIDS and will outline a road map for the next five years. The report will also show the impact of COVID-19 on people living with and affected by HIV.

The release of the report is timed just days before United Nations Member States are set to adopt a bold new political declaration on AIDS at the United Nations General Assembly High-Level Meeting on AIDS, which is to be held at United Nations Headquarters in New York from 8 to 10 June.
