The meeting was held to review progress in implementing the ‘Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS’, the blueprint for global action on AIDS that was adopted at the 2001 UN General Assembly Special Session on HIV/AIDS. The summit consists of plenary meetings, a civil society hearing, panel discussions and round tables, as well as substantive side events. The summit ended with the adoption of a political declaration re-affirming member States’ commitment to the full implementation of the Declaration.
