United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience, and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 170 countries and territories, working with governments and people on their own solutions to global and national development challenges to help empower lives and build resilient nations.
The Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS) has the responsibility for developing all relevant policy and guidance and supports the results of UNDP’s 2022-2025 Strategic Plan, summarized in its “3x6x3” framework, including strengthening institutions to progressively deliver universal access to essential services based on Structural transformation, Building resilience and Leaving no-one behind. The HIV, Health and Development Group (HHD Group) within BPPS, is helping to contribute towards this outcome. The HIV and Health Strategy 2022-2025: ‘Connecting the Dots’ elaborates UNDP’s work on HIV and health in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
UNDP has an important role in supporting health outcomes by supporting countries to address the social, cultural, and economic determinants of HIV and health in partnership with UN entities and other organizations. This is done through UNDP’s core work in reducing inequalities and social exclusion that drive HIV and poor health, promoting effective and inclusive governance for health and building resilient and sustainable systems for health. UNDP also contributes through its coordinating and convening role in bringing together multiple partners and resources at national and local levels.
As a trusted, long-term partner with extensive operational experience, UNDP supports countries in the effective implementation of complex, multilateral and multi-sectoral health programmes while simultaneously investing in capacity development so that national and local partners can assume these responsibilities over time. UNDP partners with countries in crisis/post-crisis situations, those with weak institutional capacity or governance challenges, and countries under sanctions. When requested, UNDP provide support through various implementation modalities, including technical assistance, fund administration, interim Principal Recipient (PR) in these settings, working with national partners and The Global Fund (GF) to improve management, implementation, and oversight, while simultaneously developing national capacity for governments or local entities to be able to assume the PR role over time.
