UNICEF believes that promoting the rights of the child and caring for the world’s children form the foundation of human development. UNICEF, a founding cosponsor of UNAIDS, is the leading voice for children in the global AIDS response. Active in more than 190 countries, it uses its global authority to work with partners at all levels to ensure that children have the best start in life, and as adolescents flourish in an environment free from poverty, inequality, discrimination, and disease. UNICEF aims for a generation in which all children are born free from HIV, and those who are living and infected by the virus have access to the treatment, care, and support they require to thrive.

Disparities between regions and relatively stagnant progress of pediatric antiretroviral therapy (ART) and prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) progress between 2015 and 2016 drove UNICEF in 2017 to rethink its approach with a new sense of urgency. UNICEF introduced a needs-driven, risk informed, and differentiated HIV/AIDS programme strategy. The strategy focuses on four main pillars:

  1. Data and evidence for a differentiated context-specific response
  2. Program integration for sustained results
  3. Partnership for Innovation
  4. Knowledge leadership for global learning.
