This sixth stocktaking report focuses on the response to HIV and AIDS among children in low- and middle-income countries. It is structured around the first and second decades of a child’s life, and has the following objectives: To review the HIV burden among children and adolescents and the progress being made in addressing it. To identify key strategies to accelerate access to HIV prevention, treatment, protection, care and support for children and adolescents. To summarize opportunities arising from recent scientific advances, new technology and emerging practice innovations. To mobilize national and international efforts to keep children HIV-free and ensure that those living with HIV remain AIDS-free.

While national governments are ultimately accountable for their international and domestic commitments, this report is intended to inform the coordinated efforts of all stakeholders striving to achieve the goal of an AIDS-free generation.
