The AIDS conference chief says today that world leaders lack the political will to ensure that everyone infected with HIV and AIDS gets treatment.

Julio Montaner,the president of the International AIDS Society and chairman of the AIDS 2010 conference, says the G8 group of rich nations has failed to deliver on a commitment to guarantee so-called universal access. He also warns that this could have dire consequences.

Julio Montaner said, "I cannot hide my profound disappointment and deep frustration with the recently concluded G8 and the G20 meetings in Canada. By failing to take full responsibility for the universal access pledge and more importantly for failing to articulate the next steps to meet not just the 6 MDG (millennium development goals)but also all of them because without universal access (to AIDS treatment) there shall be no MDGs by 2015."
