The World Health Organization, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) have released a new technical guide for countries on how to set ambitious yet achievable national targets for the scaling-up of essential HIV prevention, treatment and care services for people who inject drugs.

The Technical Guide aims to equip countries with a framework and process for setting national targets in order to create more consistent methods of measuring progress towards the ultimate goal of universal access to HIV prevention, treatment and care, which was adopted by the United Nations and it’s Member States at the High Level Meeting on HIV/AIDS in 2006. This goal means that evidence-based interventions must be physically accessible, affordable (if not free), equitable and non-discriminatory, not rationed or restricted, and "offered voluntarily in an enabling environment created by supportive legislation, policies and strategies".
