CEB noted the need for further analysis and incorporation of a focus on reproductive health, as well as for greater attention to prevention aspects of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. In a like manner, a culture of prevention should be applicable to malaria which poses serious health problems in many parts of the world. In this regard, the United Nations system organizations need to support research and collaborative efforts to address this scourge. It was noted that the United Nations system should be a model of best practice in combating HIV/AIDS both at headquarters and in the field. Present efforts should be reinforced through effective follow-up action in implementing the system-wide strategy to combat HIV/AIDS. In this regard, CEB called on its members to fully implement the United Nations system’s existing policies on HIV/AIDS in the workplace, inter alia, through allocation of the required resources.
