The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS) is leading 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 unites the efforts of 11 UN organizations – UNHCR, UNICEF, WFP, UNDP, UNFPA, UNODC, UN Women, ILO, UNESCO, WHO and the World Bank – to maximize results for the AIDS response. As the only United Nations entity with civil society represented on its governing body, UNAIDS has helped to encourage dialogue and bring in communities to ensure that voice of civil society would be taken into account.
The UNAIDS Secretariat has offices in 70 countries, including in Jakarta, Indonesia. UNAIDS Indonesia has been a strategic partner of the Ministry of Health Republic of Indonesia and other civil society organizations dealing with issues on HIV and key population.
