Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS)

The IAEA and UNAIDS cooperate on action against cervical cancer and HIV.

UNAIDS leads and inspires the world to achieve its shared vision of zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths. It unites the efforts of 11 UN organizations and works closely with global and national partners towards ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The IAEA-UNAIDS collaboration was formalized through a Memorandum of Understanding signed in February 2020. The two organizations will work together to support national strategies and programmes to develop integrated workplans for action against HIV and cervical cancer. In addition, they will mobilize resources to expand prevention, diagnosis and treatment services, train health professionals and raise awareness around links between HIV and cervical cancer.
