As business leaders are well placed to build AIDS awareness and to mount prevention and treatment programmes among workers and their families, UNAIDS pays considerable attention to its cooperation with the private sector.

All businesses interested in contributing to reversing the AIDS epidemic can make its own contribution to the AIDS response - based on its size, type of workforce, geographical range, financial strength and core capabilities. UNAIDS cooperate with individual companies as well as groups of companies alike.

“AIDS will be with us for generations to come. Its impact on business is likely to grow. It is essential that the business sector becomes a fully engaged partner of the global response to AIDS for the long term.“

- Dr Peter Piot, UNAIDS Executive Director.
