The Millenium Development Goals are soon expiring and progress within each area is currently being assessed. Generally, the Millenium Development Goal on HIV&AIDS (MDG6) is considered to be “broadly on track”. However, this general picture conceals “pockets” of decline in some geographical areas and certain populations where little or no progress has been achieved, and where HIV & AIDS is spreading unabated. These areas and populations have largely been ignored, either because of difficult working conditions or stigma and criminalization which prevent effective interventions.
