The Joint Programme continued to lead efforts to accelerate HIV combination prevention in countries, providing normative and implementation guidance for combination HIV prevention interventions for and with key populations and other groups at high risk of HIV infection, in line with the Global AIDS Strategy.

The Global HIV Prevention Coalition (GPC), co-convened by UNFPA and the UNAIDS Secretariat and with the active involvement of other Cosponsors and many other partners, launched its HIV Prevention 2025 Road Map in July 2022.

With key populations bearing the largest HIV burden in many parts of the world, the Joint Programme prioritized efforts to strengthen HIV prevention efforts for these groups, the first pillar of the Global Prevention Road Map by 2025.

The Joint Programme continued to work to reduce the disproportionate vulnerability to HIV among adolescent girls and young women, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. Members of the Joint Programme (including UNICEF, UNFPA, UN Women and UNAIDS Secretariat) and partners supported 75 countries to improve national HIV prevention policies and strategies targeting adolescent girls and young women. Further, reducing new HIV infections among adolescent boys and men was another key focus of the Joint Programme’s work in 2022.

The Joint Programme also helped catalyze important gains in the uptake of antiretroviral-based prevention and worked to overcome implementation bottlenecks for HIV scaling up prevention programmes including rapid introduction of new HIV prevention technologies and programme innovations.
