The Regional Programme on HIV AIDS for Latin America and The Caribbean is established on the basis of the UNDP Regional Center and the Bureau for Development Policy (BDP). It provides services to countries in response to the HIV epidemic, recognizing that the achievement of MDG 6 contributes to other MDG’s such as poverty reduction, universal primary education, gender equality, reducing child mortality, improving maternal health and combating tuberculosis.
The Regional Programme addresses the dimensions of AIDS on:
-Development Planning and Mainstreaming
-Governance of AIDS Responses
-Human Rights, Gender and Sexual Diversity
-Public Health and Development Parternships
How we do it
- Supporting AIDS responses into poverty reduction strategies, national development plans and macroeconomic processes.
-Supporting the strengthening of national capacity for inclusive governance and coordination of AIDS responses, and increase the participation of civil society and people living with HIV in the design, implementation and evaluation of AIDS Programmes.
-Supporting the implementation of policies and programmes to protect the human rights of people affected by AIDS and sexual diversity, address gender-related vulnerability, and assist countries in the use of TRIPS flexibilities to improve access to treatment.
