Success in curtailing the AIDS epidemic stems from taking a holistic approach that spans rights, health care, education, and livelihoods. 

UN work aims to reduce stigma and discrimination that bar persons living with HIV/AIDS from accessing public services in health, education, jobs, and the justice system, and to confront any complacency in terms of educating young people and other at-risk groups about HIV/AIDS.

The combined efforts of UN Agencies support the achievement of the global 90-90-90 strategy in Ghana and promote Ghana’s advocacy leadership at the regional and global levels.

This work is taken forward by the Joint UN Team on AIDS (JUTA), under the leadership of UNAIDS.
