Topics and resources

Politics and strategies

For some years, HIV/AIDS has been at the top of the international agenda. The UN General Assembly on HIV/AIDS (UNGASS) issued a wide-ranging declaration in June 2001, obliging members to increase significantly the resources they allocate to financing the fight against HIV/AIDS on an international level and formulating specific objectives. The UN Special Session also resolved to set up a global fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria in order to support funding to eliminate these diseases.

In view of the extent of the problem a number of international cooperation organisations in Switzerland have developed a policy or strategy for dealing with HIV/AIDS and have established strategic objectives.
