UNODC adressing HIV and AIDS
UNODC is a global leader in the struggle against illicit drugs and transnational organized crime. It is committed to achieving health, security and justice for all by tackling such global threats, and by delivering legal and technical assistance to prevent terrorism. As a Cosponsor of the United Nations Joint Programme on AIDS (UNAIDS), UNODC is the convening agency for addressing HIV prevention, treatment, care and support among: people who use drugs and people living and working in prison settings.
Resolution 56/6: Intensifying the efforts to achieve the targets of the 2011 Political Declaration on HIV and AIDS among people who use drugs, in particular the target to reduce HIV transmission among people who inject drugs by 50 per cent by 2015
These are activities that UNODC considers critical in supporting the effectiveness and efficiency of its basic HIV programme activities. To learn more, please open the links below:
Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS)
The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS, or UNAIDS, is the main advocate for accelerated, comprehensive and coordinated global action on the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The mission of UNAIDS is to lead, strengthen and support an expanded response to HIV and AIDS that includes preventing transmission of HIV, providing care and support to those already living with the virus, reducing the vulnerability of individuals and communities to HIV and alleviating the impact of the epidemic. UNAIDS seeks to prevent the HIV/AIDS epidemic from becoming a severe pandemic.
Closing the gap on HIV and AIDS
On 1 December 2014, UNODC commemorated World AIDS Day by remembering those affected by HIV in the last three decades and by renewing our pledges to end AIDS. Although we have made great strides in the last thirty years and the figures constantly improve - less people are dying and getting infected, and those infected have greater access to antiretroviral therapy than ever - some people have been left behind. A gap in the response has affected key populations, such as people who inject drugs and people in prisons.
