Previously known as AIDS Update, this is the 12th annual publication to provide information about actions taken by UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, to prevent HIV infection. UNFPA has worked to improve reproductive health for more than 30 years; never has the need been more urgent.

UNFPA is at the forefront of international prevention efforts, integrating HIV prevention throughout all reproductive health services. Young people, especially if poor, are at great risk: nearly half of all new infections occur between the ages of 15 and 24. UNFPA supports programmes that provide the knowledge, skills and services young people need in order to protect their reproductive health and prevent HIV infection.
