UNDP’s commitment to tackling major health challenges is based on the principles that health is both a driver and outcome of development, and that actions across a wide range of development sectors have significant impact on health outcomes. As such, our work in HIV and Health is guided by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, also known as Sustainable Development Goals.

The SDGs – also referred to as Agenda 2030 – encourage all of us to re-think our assumptions about development. The SDG framework is highly inter-connected as a testament to the fact that development is inherently complex and can no longer be seen in terms of isolated sectors such as health, agriculture or industries. Progress or lack thereof in one area influences others in substantial ways.
