Abstract: Universal access is an important initiative to scale up coverage and quality of HIV/AIDS interventions, particularly for the poor and marginalized populations. The meeting discussed the conceptual framework and process for achieving universal access as well as opportunities, obstacles, and suggestions from Member countries. It was concluded that though the main components of universal access had been developed in the past years, these interventions now needed to be scaled up. Universal access should be a country-driven process with countries setting their own realistic but challenging targets. Countries would set up short- and medium-term milestones to be achieved by 2010 with guiding principles and lessons
