The UNGASS Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS: One Year Later – HIV/AIDS Policy & Law Review 8(1)

The article reviews the process leading up to the Declaration and describes the limitations of the Declaration’s explicit and implicit recognition of human rights. It summarizes information provided by countries one year later to the Secretary-General and to UNAIDS on their progress in meeting the goals and targets of the Declaration, particularly with regard to human rights. It comments on what we can learn from this about countries’ recognition of the centrality of promoting and protecting human rights. Finally, it suggests ways to monitor more effectively and comprehensively the implementation of a human rights–based response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
