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.


In 2018 WHO continued to lead and support the health-sector response to HIV at global, regional and country levels through the development and dissemination of guidelines, norms and standards; articulating policy options and promoting policy dialogue; convening and facilitating strategic and operational partnerships; providing and coordinating technical support to countries; and supporting implementation of the Global Health Sector Strategy on HIV for 2016–2021. These efforts secured broad policy uptake and implementation in many countries, particularly for HIV prevention, testing and treatment. Throughout 2018 WHO supported countries and partners to strengthen HIV services within the framework of universal health coverage, with a focus on expanding the reach of good-quality and sustainable people-centred health services to all in need, including people from key populations and unreached communities
