Your guide to UN and UN documents and reports


UNAIDS - Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS - brings together the expertise and resources of a number of UN co-sponsor organizations to:

  • prevent new HIV infections
  • care for those living with HIV
  • mitigate the impact of the AIDS epidemic

UNAIDS was initiated in 1996 to serve as a coordinator for UN activities in the prevention and control of HIV/AIDS. Earlier, the WHO had the primary responsibility for AIDS in the United Nations. But by the mid-1990s, it became clear that the relentless spread of HIV and its impact on human lives and on social and economic development required an expanded and coordinated United Nations effort UNAIDS operates as a secretariat for the programmes involved in the struggle against AIDS in cooperation with UNDP, UNICEF, UNFPA, UNHCR, UNESCO, UNODC, UN Women, WHO, WFP, The World Bank och ILO ensuring better coordination among its partners in the UN system, governments, civil society, donors, the private sector and others.
