About Us

UN Plus is a group of United Nations (UN) staff members who live with HIV.

UN Plus was founded in March 2005 by UN staff members living with HIV who were concerned with HIV-related stigma and discrimination in the UN. The group has grown to an extensive, global network and has engaged in advocacy and support work to create an enabling work environment for people living with HIV in the UN system.

While UN Plus members come from different UN organizations and have diverse professional and cultural backgrounds, they are united for solidarity, equality and acceptance of people living with HIV in the UN system. The group has been recognized and supported by the senior management of the UN system, including the UN Secretary-General, and has built strategic partnerships with UN and non-UN organizations and networks that are advocates of issues related to people living with HIV
around the globe.
