WHO’s goal is to build a better, healthier future for people all over the world. WHO is the directing and coordinating authority for international health within the United Nations. The organization leads the global health sector response to the HIV epidemic. As a cosponsor of UNAIDS, WHO takes the lead on HIV testing, treatment, care, HIV drug resistance, HIV/tuberculosis coinfection, and jointly coordinates work on eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV and pediatric AIDS with UNICEF. Working through offices in more than 150 countries, WHO staff work with governments and other partners to ensure the highest attainable level of health for all people.

Testing and treatment scale-up continued rapidly during this biennium with strong WHO support. By mid-2017, 20.9 million people received treatment, compared to 19.5 million in 2016. Monitoring the uptake and implementation of WHO guidance is now routine and has demonstrated significant country impact. By November 2017, 70% of 139 low- and middle-income countries were following HIV “treat all guidance”.
