Saving lives, leaving no one behind

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) is leading the global effort to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals. Since starting operations in 1996, UNAIDS has led and inspired global, regional, national and local leadership, innovation and partnership with the aim of ultimately consigning HIV to history. UNAIDS provides the strategic direction, advocacy, coordination and technical support needed to catalyse and connect leadership from governments, the private sector and communities to deliver life-saving HIV services.

Under the leadership of a new Executive Director, UNAIDS is embarking on an ambitious change program. Alongside this, our Global AIDS Strategy 2021-2026 - End Inequalities. End AIDS. is a bold new approach to use an inequalities lens to close the gaps that are preventing progress towards ending AIDS.

We are now seeking a new Director of our Addis Ababa Liaison Office to help us deliver on our strategy and the current change program.

You will bring demonstrable knowledge of key policy-making and civil society stakeholders in Africa, complemented by expertise in the relevant issues, trends relating to the design of political policies across the Continent, as well as technical assistance and global advocacy strategies.
