Sensitization campaign against HIV/AIDS

In recognition of the fact that conflict and post conflict environments are high risk areas for the spread of HIV, the UN Security Council through Resolution 1308 (2000) established HIV/AIDS units or designates focal points in Peacekeeping Missions all over the world. The Resolution set out the obligation of the UN Department for Peacekeeping Operations to provide awareness and prevention programs for all peacekeeping personnel, in order to reduce the risk of peacekeepers contracting and/or spreading HIV.
