“We need to declare war on this pandemic. There is nothing that represents a bigger threat to our lives than HIV/AIDS. It has wreaked havoc on our population. I don’t know one family that has been spared.”

Reverend Benjamin Walter Mpho Moruakgomo
African Methodist Episcopal Church in Botswana

UNFPA works in more than 140 countries, at their request, assisting governments with the creation of population strategies and policies.

Most UNFPA activities are at the country level. HIV prevention efforts are often integrated within ongoing programmes in reproductive health, including ones focusing on family planning and sexual health.

They are also part of the provision of male and female condoms and a wide variety of information, education and communication activities.

The epidemic differs dramatically from country to country, which is why UNFPA supports the analysis of demographic, social, economic, cultural, behavioural and epidemiological factors.

Within countries, one community may be greatly affected while others remain relatively free of the virus, for the time being.
