The purpose of this document is to provide guidance to national AIDS programmes and partners actively involved in the country response to AIDS on use of core indicators to measure and report on the national response.
The “2011 UN Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS: Intensifying our Efforts to Eliminate HIV/AIDS” (General Assembly resolution 65/277), which was adopted at the United Nations General Assembly High Level Meeting on AIDS in June 2011, mandated UNAIDS to support countries to report on the commitments in the 2011 UN Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS. In addition the 2011 Political Declaration called for a special report to the General Assembly on progress in accordance with global reporting on the Millennium Development Goals in the 2013 review of the Goals.
The Global AIDS Response Progress Reporting (GARPR) indicators (previously known as UNGASS indicators) used to be reported at the global level every second year. However, data will now be collected every year starting in 2013, including to inform the special midterm review in 2013.
