Making progress in the fight against HIV/AIDS

For the first time since the start of the epidemic, an AIDS-free generation is within reach. UNICEF's efforts to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV have made significant progress, with 67% of pregnant women in countries with the highest rate of infection receiving services in 2013. UNICEF-supported prevention programs have also helped reduce new infections among adolescents, but more needs to be done to break the cycle. UNICEF remains committed to a multifaceted approach to stopping the epidemic including prevention, treatment, protection and care, as well as support for children and adolescents who are most at risk.
