Five years ago, governments in South East and Eastern Europe and Central Asia committed to move towards universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support by 2010. With UNAIDS support, in 2006 most of the countries of these regions set targets and now, in 2010-2011, are reviewing their achievements, seeking ways to overcome challenges, and setting objectives and targets beyond 2010.

This report aims to inform global, regional and national efforts to improve work towards universal access from a civil society perspective. The report was initiated and supported by the International Council of AIDS Service Organisations (ICASO). The Eurasian Harm Reduction Network (EHRN) produced it in cooperation with other key regional networks including: the East Europe & Central Asia Union of PLHIV Organisations (ECUO); the European AIDS Treatment Group (EATG); the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (ITPC-EECA); and the Sex Workers’ Rights Advocacy Network (SWAN).
