UNESCO's Response to HIV and AIDS

UNESCO supports responses to HIV and AIDS that are inclusive and sensitive to the needs and issues of all of the population, but with particular attention to key populations especially vulnerable to HIV and young people in school settings.

UNESCO also supports responses that are gender and age responsive, culturally appropriate, evidence-informed, grounded in human rights, and involve people living with HIV and other vulnerable populations at all stages.

UNESCO plays a leading role in EDUCAIDS and the UNAIDS Inter-Agency Task Team (IATT) on Education, which are viewed as key mechanisms in strengthening the UNAIDS combined effort to achieve Universal Access to prevention programmes, treatment, care and support.

As a founding cosponsor of UNAIDS, UNESCO works in close partnership with the other nine cosponsors and the UNAIDS Secretariat.

UNESCO’s response to HIV and AIDS is carried out within the context of:
