Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), 2017
World AIDS Day provides an opportunity to reflect on the interdependence between progress in ending AIDS and progress towards universal health coverage and the right to health. Everyone, including people living with or affected by HIV and people at risk of HIV, has the right to health. Without the right to health, people living with HIV and people at risk of HIV lack the services they need to keep themselves and their families healthy. Ensuring accessible, acceptable, available and good quality health services is a core principle of the right to health and is at the centre of the AIDS response.
