Total:   $ 68 111 644 



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

Following the implementation of the ‘Treat All’ guidelines, there was an increase of over three times (from 2014-2017) in the number of patients supported by UNHCR to access antiretroviral treatment.
