HIV and AIDS

© Pirozzi/UNICEF PACIFIC/2006

The HIV and AIDS programme works to reduce vulnerability to and impact of HIV and AIDS among the most “at risk” populations in Kiribati, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu as well as Fiji and Tuvalu, with a special focus on children and women. The programme works in partnership with national, regional, international and non-governmental organisations to combat HIV and AIDS.

The programme’s focus is on:


Behaviour development/change communication
Capacity development through training of traditional, religious and women leaders, local government representatives, teachers and health care workers
Strengthening the health care system response to HIV

The targeted results are:


Most “at risk” populations engage in HIV-risk reduction behaviours
HIV prevention, care and support is facilitated, implemented and monitored by traditional, religious and women leaders, local government representatives, teachers and health care workers in selected areas
Ante-Natal Care women and their partner in selected areas have access to and use quality Voluntary and Confidential Counselling and Testing
HIV positive children, women and their families in selected areas have access to and are benefiting from quality Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission interventions
