World AIDS Day 2008

UNESCO is committed to reducing the impact of the HIV epidemic. As one of the founding members of UNAIDS and one of the ten Cosponsor organizations, its response to HIV and AIDS is one of its key priorities.

UNESCO’s contribution is interdisciplinary. Efforts to combat HIV and AIDS are driven by the scientific discovery, research and scientific knowledge of the virus. The Organization therefore has a vital role to play in the promotion and support related to the dissemination of scientific information on:

  • the biology of infectious organisms generally, and specifically about HIV
  • advances in basic research in the area of HIV and AIDS and its role in combating the pandemic.
