At the 2011 United Nations General Assembly High Level Meeting on AIDS that took place in June in New York, Member States adopted a new Political Declaration which contained new targets to effectively respond to the AIDS epidemic.

Below are the official reports submitted by countries to the UNAIDS Secretariat for the monitoring of progress towards the targets set in the 2011 Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS. Each report is presented exactly as submitted by the country, without editing or other alteration.
