joint un programme on hiv/aids
UNAIDS, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, is a unique UN Joint Programme and an innovative partnership that leads and inspires the world in achieving universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support, providing global leadership in the response to the AIDS epidemic. UNAIDS fulfills its mission by:
- Uniting the efforts of the United Nations system, civil society, national governments, the private sector, global institutions and people living with and most affected by HIV;
- Speaking out in solidarity with the people most affected by HIV in defense of human dignity, human rights and gender equality;
- Mobilizing political, technical, scientific and financial resources and holding ourselves and others accountable for results;
- Empowering agents of change with strategic information and evidence to influence and ensure that resources are targeted where they deliver the greatest impact and bring about a prevention revolution; and
- Supporting inclusive country leadership for sustainable responses that are integral to and integrated with national health and development efforts.
Leveraging the AIDS response, UNAIDS works to build political action and to promote the rights of all people for better results for global health and development.
