Established in 2005, UN Plus advocates for the rights and well-being of UN staff living with HIV within the UNAIDS Organization. It addresses key challenges such as health insurance, stigma, and restrictive travel policies.

In response to global changes and funding challenges, UN Plus faced a temporary inactive period. However, at the end of 2023, the organization launched a comprehensive global survey to gain insights into the evolving challenges faced by UN staff living with HIV, marking a fundamental step in revitalizing its mission.

UN Plus Relaunch:

In 2024, UN Plus officially relaunched its mission following the release of the survey report, highlighting key challenges faced by UN staff living with HIV, including stigma, mental health issues, insurance concerns, and overall well-being.
