This volunteer assignment is only open for nationals of Indonesia
The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), established in 1996, leads and inspires the world to achieve its shared vision of zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths. UNAIDS unites the efforts of 11 UN organizations—UNHCR, UNICEF, WFP, UNDP, UNFPA, UNODC, UN Women, ILO, UNESCO, WHO and the World Bank—and works closely with global and national partners towards ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The UNAIDS 2016–2021 Strategy calls to action to get on the Fast-Track and reach people being left behind. It is an urgent call to front-load investments. It is a call to reach the 90–90–90 treatment targets, to close the testing gap and to protect the health of the 22 million people living with HIV who are still not accessing treatment. It is a call to redress the deplorably low treatment coverage for children living with HIV.
Fast Track to End AIDS by 2030
As a signatory to the SDGs, Indonesia has made a national commitment to achieving the SDGs which include the commitment to End AIDS by 2030. UNAIDS’s Fast Track approach was launched as a strategy for accelerating the response, and ensuring achievement of the SDGs. The Fast Track approach sets ambitious targets for 2020: 90% of people living with HIV know their HIV status; 90% of people who know their HIV-positive status are on treatment; 90% of people on treatment have suppressed viral loads (thus reducing the likelihood of passing on their infection). Zero discrimination.
In the last four years, Indonesia has fittingly launched polices that are designed to massively accelerate and expand access to HIV prevention, testing and treatment services for key populations and pregnant women, among others, and implement high-impact interventions in prioritised geographies. Three cities are implementing city-led responses under the ASEAN Cities Getting to Zero initiative, and the Governor of Jakarta has signed the Paris Declaration, a global commitment to Fast Track local responses in order to generate national and global impact.
UNAIDS and USAID (US Agency for International Development)-PEPFAR (President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief) Indonesia have committed to work in collaboration in support of Indonesia to achieve its goal of ending HIV through the adoption of the “90-90-90” global targets as a framework for HIV national program planning and prioritization. This partnership will support UNAIDS to strengthen coordination functions and capacity of national stakeholders as well as improve management and use of strategic information and communication to advocate for critical interventions for key populations and improve Indonesia’s overall performance towards 90-90-90 global targets.
