Global solidarity and partnership will lead to obtaining universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support, a high-ranking Polish official said in the United Nations on Thursday.

The statement came as Adam Fronczak, Poland's under secretary of state for the Ministry of Health, addressed the UN General Assembly high level meeting on HIV/AIDS, which entered its second day here.

Ten years after the 2001 UN Special Session on HIV/AIDS, and the 2006 signing of the Political Declaration where UN member states committed to moving towards universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support, the world body meets at this critical point.

"I am convinced that we all gathered here, at the 2011 UN General Assembly high level meeting on AIDS, will continue to put all our efforts on achieving the goals set up in the new political declaration we are going to adopt here," Fronczak said. "The global solidarity and partnership will lead to obtaining universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support for everybody."

"Poland stands ready to cooperate in achieving this global challenge," he added.

On the final day of the session, UN member states are expected to adopt a declaration that will help direct country responses to HIV/AIDS for the next five years.
