UNAIDS Inter-agency Task Team on HIV and Young People (IATT/YP)

A series of seven Guidance Briefs is avalailable

The UNAIDS Inter-Agency Task Team (IATT) on HIV and Young People was created in 2001 to support an accelerated, harmonized and expanded global, regional and country-level response to increase young people's utilization of HIV prevention, treatment, and care services.

Membership includes the UNAIDS Secretariat and UNAIDS co-sponsors (UNHCR, UNICEF, WHO, UNDP, UNFPA, UNODC, ILO, UNESCO, World Bank), along with a growing number of youth networks/associations, donors, civil society, and research institutions.

The task team, which is co-convened by UNFPA and UNICEF, is one of the Task Teams that have been created within UNAIDS to foster cooperation among the many agencies and partners responding to the AIDS pandemic in specific technical and sectoral areas. The role of UNFPA and UNICEF is to facilitate policy discussions and coordination and to provide programmatic advice and strategic guidance, in addition to acting as the IATT secretariat.
