This report comes more than three years after Latin America and Caribbean countries committed to the target of universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care, and support, as set forth by the United Nations General Assembly High Level Meeting on HIV/AIDS in 2006. PAHO, UNICEF, and UNAIDS present to you Challenges Posed by the HIV Epidemic in Latin America and the Caribbean 2009 to contribute to making progress towards this target. The report focuses on the epidemiological characteristics of HIV in the region and provides the reader with a discussion of major challenges still faced by countries as they move towards scaling up their national AIDS programs and services. The report also suggests areas in which a critical mass of knowledge, greater emphasis, and focused action are still required to overcome these challenges and help support countries to reach their national universal access targets.
