UNESCO's Strategy for Responding to HIV and AIDS

UNESCO's Strategy for Responding to HIV and AIDS
  • © UNESCO

Every UNESCO sector, institute, regional bureau, cluster and country office contributes to and continues to strengthen comprehensive national responses to HIV and AIDS.

UNESCO's Strategy for Responding to HIV and AIDS describes how UNESCO undertakes its work in the context of a broader effort organised through UNAIDS to move towards universal access to prevention programmes, treatment, care and support.

The Strategy articulates the core actions within UNESCO's response flowing from its vision, goals, objectives and principles and experience gained from the Organization's longstanding work in this area.

Furthermore, the Strategy outlines how UNESCO proceeds to fulfil its responsibilities under the UNAIDS division of labour, including as the lead organization for HIV prevention with young people in educational institutions.

UNESCO supports five core actions:

  • Advocacy and Support for Evidenced-Informed Policies and Practices;

  • Policy and Programmatic Guidance;

  • Technical Support and Capacity Enhancement;

  • Coordination and Harmonisation;

  • Monitoring, Assessing and Evaluating Progress.
