The WHO Programme on HIV is guided by the Global Health Strategy for HIV 2016 – 2021 (GHSS). Its goals, consistent the UNAIDS Strategy and international commitments, are to achieve universal access to prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care interventions for all in need, and to contribute to achieving health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their associated targets by 2020. 


The objective of the Department of HIV is to lead an effective, organization-wide HIV effort to support Member States in the implementation of the GHSS. The five GHSS strategic objectives are: Strategic Direction 1: Information for focused action (know your epidemic and response); Strategic Direction 2: Interventions for impact (covering the range of services needed) 3: Delivering for equity (covering the populations in need of services); Strategic Direction 4: Financing for sustainability; and Strategic Direction 5: Innovation for acceleration.


The Key Populations and Innovative Prevention (KPP) unit with the Department of HIV is responsible for much of WHO’s work on HIV Prevention. It is responsible for the department’s work on new prevention technologies, principally pre-exposure prophylaxis, voluntary medical male circumcision and HIV testing and counselling services. The unit also focuses on key populations at greatest risk of HIV infection (sex workers, men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, people in prisons and other closed settings and transgender people) as well as other groups vulnerable to HIV infection such as adolescents.


The Treatment and Care (TAC) unit within the Department of HIV is responsible for WHO’s work on Treatment using antiretroviral therapy. It is responsible for the department’s work on optimisation of ART regimens, service delivery and implementation.
