UNAIDS  UNAIDS leads and inspires the world to achieve its shared vision of zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths.


Ahead of World AIDS Day on 1 December, UNAIDS has launched a report announcing that nearly 21 million people living with HIV are now accessing treatment. The report also shows, however, that the people most marginalized in society and most affected by HIV are still facing major challenges in accessing the health and social services they urgently need.
The report was launched by UNAIDS Executive Director, Michel Sidibé, together with the South African Minister of Health, Aaron Motsoaledi, in Khayelitsha, South Africa. Find out more and read the report on unaids.org.

UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé joined the former First Lady of the United States of America, Laura Bush, the First Lady of Namibia, Monica Geingos, and the First Lady of Panama, Lorena Castillo de Varela, on 18 September to discuss how they have used their political platforms and voices to bring attention to some of the most pressing issues affecting the world.

The event, A Role Without a Rulebook: the Influence and Leadership of Global First Ladies, was held at the Concordia Annual Summit in New York, United States, and explored the challenges of being a woman of influence without a job description. Unelected but official, the spouses of government leaders have a unique opportunity to build bridges between civil society and government institutions. The three first ladies each shared how they have navigated the role, crafting their own platforms and agendas for progress.

Our Executive Director, Michel Sidibé, recently visited Yuetan Community Health Centre with our new Country Director in China, Ama Sanda. The facility is part of China’s highly regarded multitiered medical system, which has successfully brought life-saving services to people across the country.
“Community health centres are the first line of defence in protecting people’s health,” said Mr Sidibé. “The family-centred interface and clear bond between staff and patients exemplifies people-to-people connections.”
In 2015, there were more than 34 000 community health clinics providing essential health services to 706 million people in China.

UNAIDS Regional Goodwill Ambassador for Latin America and the Caribbean Alejandra Oraa recently visited El Salvador to raise awareness about strengthening HIV prevention efforts for young people.

During her visit, @alejandraoraa met with youth leaders in order to learn where young people face barriers accessing sexual and reproductive health and HIV-related services and comprehensive sexuality education. Young people stressed the need to urgently accelerate efforts to provide youth with the tools they need to make informed decisions to protect their health, rights and dignity.

Miss Universe 2015 and UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador for Asia and the Pacific, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach (@piawurtzbach), has launched an HIV awareness campaign with a public HIV screening in Taguig City in the Philippines.

The Progressive Information Awareness campaign, also known as the PIA project, aims to inform young people about HIV through social media and informative, youth-friendly videos, as well as to promote policies that will enable young people, particularly from key populations, to access HIV and other key health services.

Today, 5 000 people will become infected with HIV and 2 700 will die from AIDS-related illnesses. Let's make tomorrow better.

UNAIDS released a new report on 20 July showing that for the first time the scales have tipped: more than half of all people living with HIV (53%) now have access to HIV treatment and AIDS-related deaths have almost halved since 2005.

The report was launch by UNAIDS Executive Director, MIchel Sidibé together with the Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo at the Mayor's office in Paris, France.

"Empowerment is critically important because young people's voices need to be heard," said actress and activist, @jennaortega at the @unaidsglobal event Leaving No-One Behind in Decision-making: Setting the Example in the Sustainable Development Goal Era held on 18 July - Nelson Mandela Day - during the UN High-Level Political Forum in New York. "Young people should be able to influence policies and practices that affect our health. Young people are creative and inspiring and will often come up with creative ideas. We can be the generation to end AIDS," she added.

The 40th meeting of the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board dedicated its thematic segment to HIV prevention. Participants discussed the current status of primary HIV prevention, shared best practices, identified gaps in programmes and financing and developed strategies to reach people at higher risk.

The balloons in the room reminded everyone of the different HIV prevention methods that must be available as part of combination HIV prevention programmes to reduce new HIV infections.

Harm reduction programmes are saving lives among people who inject drugs. Unfortunately, not everyone in need of such services has access to them.The combination of unavailability of harm reduction services and inadequate coverage where available puts progress in the response to HIV at risk. It also denies life-saving health services to millions of people who inject drugs.

UNAIDS has produced a series of videos to raise awareness about harm reduction and to call for the provision of harm reduction services to all in need. Find out more on unaids.org.

“I have become a role model for my clients, as they can see I am successful and they understand that just because you have HIV, it does not mean you have to disappear from society,” says Dy Sokha, a counsellor with the ARV Users Association (AUA), a community-based organization providing services to people living with HIV.

Health-care settings are among the most common environments where people experience stigma and discrimination. In Cambodia, a community-based HIV organization works alongside health-care providers to prevent stigma and discrimination in hospitals. Read more about it on unaids.org.
