UNDP Turkey and HIV/AIDS


UNDP Turkey plays an active role in the UN Country Team's Theme Group on HIV/AIDS to integrate HIV/AIDS issues and concerns into UNDP's programmes and strategies.

In partnership with other UN agencies in Turkey, UNDP is contributing to the objectives of strengthening the national response to HIV/AIDS, supporting advocacy and coalition-building among national stakeholders, and supporting education, training and awareness-raising.

In particular, UNDP's programmes that focus on young people and street children in Southeastern Anatolia (the GAP region) will enable awareness-raising and training on HIV/AIDS related issues. These in turn help to strengthen national efforts at awareness and prevention among at-risk and vulnerable populations.

UNAIDS: A joint response to HIV/AIDS

The joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, UNAIDS, is the main advocate for global action on the epidemic. It leads, strengthens and supports an expanded response aimed at preventing transmission of HIV, providing care and support, reducing the vulnerability of individuals and communities to HIV/AIDS and alleviating the impact of the epidemic.
