Partners In 2005, the Secretary-General of the United Nations reaffirmed that the only way to achieve the Millennium Development Goals was to break with business as usual and dramatically accelerate and scale up action until 2015. This will only be possible if all stakeholders in the fight against HIV/AIDS work together in partnership. UNICEF supports such partnerships to advance action for children, adolescents and young people affected by HIV/AIDS. The 2001 Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS included a long list of those with a critical role in the fight against HIV/AIDS: governments, the UN system, intergovernmental organizations, people living with HIV/AIDS and vulnerable groups, medical, scientific and educational institutions, civil society, the business sector, including generic and research-based pharmaceutical companies, trade unions, the media, parliamentarians, sporting organizations, faith-based organizations, traditional leaders, communities and families. UNITE FOR CHILDREN UNITE AGAINST AIDS provides a platform for everyone involved in halting and reversing the spread of HIV/AIDS among children, adolescents and young people.
