About the IATT

The Inter-agency task team on HIV Prevention and Young People (IATT-YP) comprises a core group of international and national agencies that seek to accelerate the global response to HIV prevention for young people aged 10-24 years.

The IATT is composed of Working Groups (Comprehensive Knowledge, HIV Testing and Counseling, Condoms, Harm Reduction, Young People Living with HIV and Strategic Information and Monitoring) with specific mandates, and also works jointly to support the planning and acceleration of the scale-up of high quality HIV prevention responses in selected countries.  The IATT Secretariat is made up of representatives from the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) who have both been designated the co-convenors for this programme area by the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board under the revised Division of Labour.

The Secretariat has a reporting accountability on progress towards reduction of a new HIV infections in young people.  Priorities to improve coordination and monioring of this progress include:

  • Strengthening dissemination and access to key publications, advocacy messages and resources for programme development.
  • Enhancing systematic monitoring of progress towards the global goal of reduction of new infections in young people in priority countries.
  • Establishing a platform for exchange of working documents and practical experience in addressing programme challenges not only between members of the IATT but between programme managers and implementers at the country level.
