|HIV and AIDS|
UNDP Zimbabwe is supporting the Government of Zimbabwe in mobilising a multi-sectoral response to the pandemic.Through its management of Grants such as the Global Fund, the goal is to mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS by addressing both the causes and impact of the pandemic on Human Development.
The Global Fund
Much more remains to be done, but there are signs of a dramatic turnaround in the fight against these devastating diseases. New HIV infections are declining in many of the countries most affected by the epidemic. More and more countries are in a position to target the elimination of malaria from their territories. The world is on course to halve TB mortality by 2015 in comparison with 1990.
Since its inception in 2002, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has been a major engine driving this remarkable progress.
