The Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) initiated the United Nations programs called "UNITE against AIDS" as part of the Millenium Development Goals for 2015. Its main goals include reducing the adult population infected with HIv/AIDS and eliminating the number of children infected with AIDS, both within five years.

At the General Assembly in early June, world leaders adopted the Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS to prevent HIV/AIDS infection in populations at greater risk. Furthermore, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon claims that HIV/AIDS is one of the greatest vulnerabilities among the MDG goals and therefore urged the United Nations to release an annual report on the state of HIV infection. I believe the United Nations should not only take initiative to prevent and reduce HIV/AIDS but also raise awareness among humans about this problem.
