The Joint Action for Results: UNAIDS Outcome Framework, 2009-2011 - We Can Empower Young People to Protect Themselves from HIV

Published on


The Joint Action for Results: UNAIDS Outcome Framework, 2009-2011 represents a new and more focused commitment to the HIV response. It is a platform for moving towards UNAIDS’s vision of zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths, and implementation of UNAIDS 2011-2015 Strategy. It commits the UNAIDS Secretariat and cosponsors to leverage their respective organizational mandates and resources to work collectively to deliver results for people at country level. The Outcome Framework focuses on 10 priority areas, each representing a pivotal component of the AIDS response. Focused, concrete and synergistic actions in these areas have the potential to change the trajectory of the epidemic. Building on gains already made in these areas will also help to achieve universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support, and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). In 2009, UNAIDS Executive Director asked each Joint United Nations Team on AIDS, in consultation with their national AIDS programme, to identify three to five of the priority areas for intensified, unified UN support in 2009-2011. For each priority area, a business case has been developed by a global inter-agency working group to complement action on the ground. Each business case is different, but each succinctly explains the rationale for the priority area and outlines why success in this area will dramatically decrease new HIV infections and improve the lives of people living with HIV. The business cases delineate what is currently working and what needs to change in order to make headway in the 10 areas.They are intended to guide future investment and to hold UNAIDS accountable for its role in achieving tangible results. Each priority area business case presents three bold results to be achieved globally by 2011, which mark important progress toward our shared 2015 goals. The aims of the business cases are to optimize partnerships between national governments, communities, the United Nations (UN), development partners and other stakeholders, and to focus our work, hearts and minds on a unified and strategic vision.
