World Aids Day: Global launch of the 2010 Stocktaking Report “Children and AIDS” with UN partners

WHAT:

The Stocktaking Report 2010 reviews advances made in the four areas of HIV and AIDS that affect children and highlights key steps towards achieving an AIDS-free generation. The report is issued by UNICEF and its partners (UNAIDS, UNESCO, UNFPA, WHO).

 

One major finding is that most countries have made important gains in preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV and in paediatric treatment. Some countries have made progress towards HIV prevention goals, and more AIDS-affected children are benefiting from protection, care and support services, but much more remains to be done.

 

The report will be launched at a press conference in New York with news embargoed until 10AM US EST (15:00 GMT), 30 November 2010.

 

WHEN:

Tuesday, 30 November 2010; 11am to 12pm

 

WHERE:

UNICEF House, Danny Kaye Visitors Centre; 3 UN Plaza, New York, NY 10017
