UNAIDS will intensify its assistance in Nepal over the next year:
The Joint Programme will further enhance the joint UN action at country and regional level to support the national HIV/AIDS response. In order to achieve that, UNAIDS will increase the UN system capacity for a coherent and expanded response and will mainstream HIV/AIDS into UN development instruments.
It will work on a harmonized, multi-sectoral response under one national programme, coordinated by one national authority, and having one monitoring and evaluation framework (The â€œThree Onesâ€œ).
Furthermore, UNAIDS will give support to programming scale up by engaging broad partnerships in prevention and treatment, care and support programmes and by supporting expanded targeted interventions for most at risk populations, especially migrants and IDUs.
UNAIDS will also facilitate the provision of technical support. It will support the National HIV/AIDS Programme and partners for accessing and managing technical assistance and through technical resource facilities it will support a functional Technical Advisory Group within the framework of the UN implementation of the Global Fund for AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
It will work with civil society, organizations, including people living with HIV/AIDS, to increase their capacity and meaningful involvement in the national response.
Through the initiative, the Asia-Pacific Leadership Forum (APLF), UNAIDS will collaborate with the media, influential community leaders and the private sector to reduce stigma and discrimination and create a more supportive environment for HIV/AIDS programmes.
