Welcome to UNAIDS Science now and to the seventh issue of HIV this month!

This month, the Special Summit of the African Union on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria released a report that highlights increased, targeted health spending as an essential foundation to greater economic growth and development in Africa. The report, Abuja +12: Shaping the future of health in Africa, published by the African Union (AU) and UNAIDS, reviews progress made since the AU’s 2001 Abuja Declaration—in which leaders pledged to mobilize domestic and international resources for health and remove barriers to the AIDS response—highlights remaining gaps, and prioritizes next steps. A press release of the same is found at the UNAIDS website.

As you know, the International AIDS Society Conference also happened from 30 June-3 July in Kuala Lumpur.  Visit the IAS 2013 conference programme-at-a-glance site to watch most of the important sessions and see a lot of the best presentations from the conference. 

In connection with the new WHO Consolidated Guidelines on the Use of Antiretroviral Drugs for Treating and Preventing HIV Infection released by WHO last month at the same conference, here is a link to the full document.
