Human Rights Day

World AIDS Day

This year’s theme for World AIDS Day, which will be marking its 30th anniversary on 1 December, will be “Know your status”.

Significant progress has been made in the AIDS response since 1988, and today three in four people living with HIV know their status. But we still have miles to go, as the latest UNAIDS report shows, and that includes reaching people living with HIV who do not know their status and ensuring that they are linked to quality care and prevention services.

Midterm Review of the Asian and Pacific Declaration on Population and Development

Population dynamics are both drivers and outcomes of sustainable development. Trends such as ageing, fertility decline, urbanization, international migration require proactive responses to achieve sustainable development and a higher quality of life for all people, without compromising the needs of future generations. Central to this goal is the full recognition of the human rights of all persons without distinction of any kind, gender equality and full access to sexual and reproductive health services and enjoyment of reproductive rights.
