Getting to Zero UNAIDS 2011-2015 STRATEGY Ø Zero new HIV infections Ø Zero AIDS-related deaths Ø Zero discrimination CAJP-OAS/ Washington, April 2011
Created in 1994 by a resolution of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC),the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS has been functioning since 1996. UNAIDS provides global leadership in response to the AIDS epidemic by fostering political incentives, catalyzing transformative social movements and making resources available, thereby ensuring execution of effective national strategies, multisectoral participation and respect for the human rights of those affected. UNAIDS combines the work of ten UN organizations (UNHCR, UNICEF, WFP, UNDP, UNFPA, UNODC, ILO, UNESCO, WHO, and the World Bank) and the Secretariat, following a biennial work plan to optimize coherence, coordination and the effects of the UN response to the AIDS epidemic, in support of the countries.
Three strategic guidelines for renewing the global response to HIV Revolutionize HIV prevention Catalyze the next phase of treatment, care and support Advance human rights and gender equality for the HIV response
UNAIDS The epidemic in Latin America is concentrated in certain population groups

These studies need to be replicated in the other countries. 15.97% Modes of transmission in Peru, 2010 Estimate of new sexually transmitted cases each year, among different population groups

Partnerships in a new world Effective partnerships remain fundamental to successful and sustainable HIV responses. Partnerships give voice to the people who are infected and affected, act as a catalytic force for change, and provide accountability for political commitments. Effective partnerships must enable nationally owned responses, foster South–South cooperation and move beyond the traditional HIV and health sectors to broader development areas. These partnerships must include political alliances that link HIV movements with movements seeking justice through social change.
