Towards the vision of zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination, and zero AIDS-related deaths, the UNAIDS 2016-2021 Strategy expressly calls for accelerated efforts in countries where the leveraging of the UN system and other capacities will have the greatest impact.  The Joint Programme, together with governments, civil society and other partners, will help countries identify such areas in which to fast-track the delivery of HIV-related services. A differentiated approach, country by country, city by city and district by district,  will ensure that people in need are not left behind.

The 2020-2021 Regional and Country report, which is a component of the UNAIDS 2020–2021 Performance Monitoring Report, showcases the primary contributions of the Joint Programme to progress towards ending AIDS by 2030 in regions. In addition to regional summaries of the Joint Programme’s contributions, selected achievements in individual countries (one per region) are highlighted, enabling readers to understand the Joint Programme’s catalytic role and importance in different country contexts.
