UNAIDS leads the global effort to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals. Since it started operations in 1996, UNAIDS has led and inspired global, regional, national and local leadership, innovation and partnership to ultimately consign HIV to history.
UNAIDS generates strategic information and analysis that increases the understanding of the state of the AIDS epidemic and progress made at the local, national, regional and global levels. It leads the world’s most extensive data collection on HIV epidemiology, programme coverage and finance on the HIV epidemic—vital for an effective response.
UNAIDS Strategy 2016-2021
The UNAIDS 2016–2021 Strategy is a bold call to action to get on the Fast-Track and reach people being left behind. It is an urgent call to front-load investments. It is a call to reach the 90–90–90 treatment targets, to close the testing gap and to protect the health of the 22 million people living with HIV who are still not accessing treatment. It is a call to redress the deplorably low treatment coverage for children living with HIV.
The Strategy focuses on our unfinished agenda—drastically reducing new infections to bend the trajectory of the epidemic. We must protect future generations from acquiring HIV by eliminating once and for all new HIV infections among children, and by ensuring young people can access the HIV-related and sexual and reproductive health services they need. Empowering young people, particularly young women, is of utmost importance to prevent HIV, including by ending gender-based violence and promoting healthy gender norms.
Ending the AIDS epidemic will involve progress across the entire spectrum of rights: civil, cultural, economic, political, social, sexual and reproductive. Defending the rights of all people—including children, women, young people, men who have sex with men, people who use drugs, sex workers and clients, transgender people and migrants—is critical to ensuring access to life-saving services. Through the realization of their rights, people being left behind will move ahead, to the very forefront of the journey to end AIDS— informed and empowered, mobilized and engaged.
UNDP’s Partnership with UNAIDS
UNDP is a founding Cosponsor of UNAIDS, a partner of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) and a cosponsor of several other international health partnerships. UNDP’s work on HIV, health and development leverages the organization’s core strengths and mandates in human development, governance and capacity development to complement the efforts of specialist health focused United Nations agencies.
UNAIDS Division of Labour
The Division of Labour outlines the roles and responsibilities among Cosponsors and the UNAIDS Secretariat so as to enable the Joint Programme to collectively deliver integrated and impactful contributions at country, regional and global levels. It is in line with the Secretary General’s vision for a repositioned UN development system and the 2030 Agenda, leveraging comparative advantage to bring added value, capacity and skill sets required to address country needs.
