Delivering as One
NEW YORK – Five years ago, a landmark report published by the Global Commission on HIV and the Law urged governments to promote laws and policies grounded in evidence and human rights in order to turn the tide against AIDS. This week, members of the Commission and representatives of UN Member States, civil society, academia and international organizations came together to assess the progress made in advancing the report’s recommendations, look at the barriers that remain and discuss opportunities for further progress.
70 YEARS AND COUNTING
Seven decades ago, the world was recovering from a devastating world war. For millions of child survivors of that war, peace still encompassed a landscape of significant challenges and damaged futures. UNICEF was created to help those children – no matter who they were, no matter where they were from. The only thing that mattered for the nascent organization was achieving results for children in need.
This publication shows how change works. It is a collection of 10 transformative development stories for development practitioners. It explains how the featured projects have yielded lasting, far-reaching results, and accelerated early progress on multiple Sustainable Development Goals. The interventions profiled here demonstrate how much can happen when commitment is sustained, and when governments, private sector, civil society and UNDP work together. Innovation, delivering at large-scale, and partnership are key elements of the successful projects in the publication.

There are more than 600 people in Balochistan who are registered as HIV/Aids patients with the number of non-registered patients deemed to be more alarming.
The number of non-registered patients is more alarming," said Dr. Noor Qazi, Chief of Balochistan Aids Control Program.
Qazi was speaking at an event held in Quetta to mark the World Aids Day 2016.
The program has registered 638 HIV/Aids patients belonging to various parts of the province so far, of which only 407 are getting medicines regularly, Qazi added.
PESHAWAR: While putting the number of HIV/AIDS cases in the country at around 97,400, health minister Shahram Khan Tarakai on Wednesday said his government would continue supporting such patients in their treatment and rehabilitation.
He told reporters at the Peshawar Press Club that his department was ensuring provision of free antiretroviral medicines and testing facilities to patients at two HIV centres in Peshawar and Kohat districts.
The quest of the last 15 years to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) taught us that Global Goals can motivate and help sustain leaps in human progress. It also taught us that the specifics matter. In some places, the MDGs became a widely-recognized, consistent and important driver of local progress; in others, the role and impact of the MDGs was more ambiguous. A lot depended on way the MDGs were implemented: if local change agents made them meaningful locally; if local leaders drew on their legitimacy and visibility; if they were employed to solve real-life problems etc.
