The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) is a partnership that aims to achieve universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support. With a vision of “Zero new HIV infections. Zero discrimination. Zero AIDS-related deaths”, UNAIDS mission is to unite 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.
It speaks out in solidarity with the people affected by HIV in defense of human dignity, human rights and gender equality and works to mobilize political, technical, scientific and financial resources. Holding itself and others accountable for results, UNAIDS seeks to empower 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 resolution.
It also supports inclusive country leadership for sustainable responses that are integral to and integrated with national health and development efforts.
