UNAIDS, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, is an innovative partnership that leads and inspires the world in achieving universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support. UNAIDS fulfills its mission by: a) uniting the efforts of the United Nations system, civil society, national governments, the private sector, global institutions and people living with and most affected by HIV; b) speaking out in solidarity with the people most affected by HIV in defense of human dignity, human rights and gender equality; c) mobilizing political, technical, scientific and financial resources and holding ourselves and others accountable for results; d) empowering agents of change with strategic information and evidence to influence and ensure that resources are targeted where they deliver the greatest impact and bring about a prevention revolution; and e) supporting inclusive country leadership for sustainable responses that are integral to and integrated with national health and development efforts
