Assistance Strategy

The Support for AIDS Joint Programme unites the HIV/AIDS work of all UN organisations in Uganda under one framework. The Joint Programme is the operational plan for the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) strategy on HIV/AIDS. It outlines the collective influence and responsibility of all the UN organisations toward an accelerated, effective and accountable national HIV/AIDS response. The Joint Programme has one main outcome (UNDAF outcome 4): reduction of HIV incidence by 40% during the period of the National Strategic Plan (NSP; 2007/2008 – 2011/2012), with a focus on addressing the social, cultural, and economic causes of vulnerability.

The specific Joint Programme outcomes are:

  • Outcome 4.1: HIV/AIDS response is mainstreamed and sustained across government with improved planning, programming, budgeting, coordination, systems integration and a stronger policy and legislative environment (which is human rights-based and gender sensitive).
  • Outcome 4.2: Universal access to evidence-based, quality-assured HIV prevention services that lead to improved service uptake, sustained behaviour change, and a reduction in the number of new infections.
  • Outcome 4.3: Quality of life of people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS improved and their vulnerability reduced.
  • Outcome 4.4: Effective management of response to HIV/AIDS pandemic by all actors is being guided by creation and use of strategic information, and a comprehensive system of results-based measurement and surveillance.

The Support for AIDS Joint Programme contributes towards the achievement of Millennium Development Goal 6, to combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases.
