UNHCR, the UN refugee agency has a mandate to lead and coordinate global action in humanitarian contexts to protect the rights and well-being of tens of million of refugees, internally displaced persons, and other people of concern. Active in more than 120 countries, UNHCR makes an impactful contribution to the international AIDS response. The agency reaches people who may have become more vulnerable to HIV owing to displacement and exposure to conflict situations. UNHCR has a wide range of interventions and programmes, including: HIV prevention, protection, and treatment; reproductive health services; food security and nutrition; water, sanitation, and hygiene services. The agency has been a UNAIDS cosponsor since 2004.


UNHCR has outlined the following four key priorities for 2014-2018:

  1. Reduce transmission of HIV using a protection and rights-based approach
  2. Facilitate universal access to antiretroviral therapy
  3. Facilitate the elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV
  4. Improve access to comprehensive reproductive, maternal, and newborn health services

Significant progress has been made in improving access to comprehensive HIV and reproductive health services in the past five years, particularly in terms of integrating refugees, internally displaced people, and other people affected by humanitarian emergencies into national health systems in order to improve access to HIV and reproductive health services. UNHCR teams at global, regional and country levels continue to work with communities to ensure populations affected by humanitarian emergencies are not left behind as the agency contributes towards achieving the targets set out in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the UNAIDS 2016–2021 Strategy.
