UNAIDS has launched a revamped transparency portal, open.unaids.org, which presents current data on how UNAIDS is working to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030.
The portal features joint results, country-level information, financial reporting, donor contributions, indicator trends and detailed information on the achievements of the UNAIDS Cosponsors.
“This portal is part of our collective efforts to ensure that we strengthen our transparency, accountability and communications around how we work and what we achieve. It provides Member States, donors, partners and staff alike with an excellent and highly accessible resource,” says Gunilla Carlsson, UNAIDS Deputy Executive Director.
The UNAIDS transparency portal for the first time presents how UNAIDS is working with the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). UNAIDS became an IATI publisher in late 2016 and since then has regularly been publishing the details of financial and programme information in a standardized format in the IATI registry.
UNAIDS’ commitment to being open and accountable has been demonstrated by efforts to share programmatic and financial data with the public since 2014, when the initial transparency portal was launched at UNAIDS’ first financing dialogue. Since then, the portal has presented all information on performance and financial reporting shared with the Programme Coordinating Board annually. Adoption of the IATI standard—a format and framework for publishing data—has been another important step in ensuring that data are accessible and available to all.
The portal can be accessed at https://open.unaids.org/.
