In 2022, the Joint Programme developed and promoted normative guidance, with communities, for community-led HIV responses with focus on network strengthening, community-led monitoring and service delivery.

Further, recognizing that community-led HIV responses are central to the implementation of the Global AIDS Strategy but remain inadequately resourced and often are insufficiently elevated and integrated in national responses, the Joint Programme prioritized support for community-led responses across the HIV response. This included advocacy and technical support to countries for the incorporation and expansion of community-led responses (Greater Involvement of People Living with HIV/AIDS and engagement in decision-making, advocacy, service delivery and monitoring) in national HIV responses (including policies, planning, budgeting and reporting).
