Who we are
The UNMISS HIV/AIDS Unit works to combat HIV and AIDS both within and outside the mission. It is committed to a fair and equitable workplace, which ensures all personnel are fully informed about HIV and AIDS and related issues, including policies.
The Unit is committed to promoting sustained positive behaviour change through various HIV interventions, including prevention strategies in South Sudan. The Unit aims to build HIV and AIDS programmes, in which all persons regardless of gender, sexual orientation, background, religion, culture and or economic status have access to quality HIV and AIDS services.
Why we are here
- Create HIV and AIDS capacity building in South Sudan, zeroing in on three identified priority areas -- HIV and AIDS Integration in Sexual Gender-Based Violence, HIV and AIDS mainstreaming in Disarmament, Demobilization and Re-integration, and HIV integration in Security Sector Reform;
- Reduce the risk of UNMISS members transmitting or contracting HIV by developing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating a comprehensive mission-wide HIV and AIDS awareness, prevention, care and support strategy;
- Create HIV and AIDS capacity building to support South Sudan through outreach programmes in collaboration with other stakeholders.
