Southern Thailand Empowerment and Participation (STEP) for SDGs
In 2018 UNDP has continued its works to promote peace and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the Southern border provinces. UNDP’s global experience demonstrates that preparations for peace are as important as addressing the fallout of conflict. Preparing for peace requires substantive participation by all segments of society, equal access to services, strengthened institutional capacities and ensuring people’s livelihoods provide them sufficient security to allow them to work towards rebuilding the social fabric that a durable peace will require. Lessons learned from UNDP global peacebuilding activities as well as the successful interventions in the Southern border provinces show that peace is more durable and stronger when women leaders are actively involved, and youth are fully engaged in their society.
In order to further consolidate the achievements of STEP I & II, UNDP is launching a new project in 2018. The objectives of this new initiative include:
UNAIDS Unified Budget, Results and Accountability Framework (UBRAF)
HIV-related stigma and discrimination (S&D) is recognized as a key barrier to HIV prevention, testing, care and adherence to treatment. Currently, PLHIV and key populations and other vulnerable groups continue to face stigma and discrimination when seeking access to health services.
Thailand is committed to reduce 90% discrimination against PLHIV and key populations in health care settings by 2030 and has recognized that reducing HIV-related stigma and discrimination is critical in ensuring proportionate and equitable access to services to those most affected, in particular key populations. While significant progress has been made over the last five years to reduce S&D through the introduction of national monitoring systems to measure S&D and the on-going development and expansion of complaints resolution and rights protection system, issues remain, particularly among key populations.
The overall objective of the UBRAF workplan is to reduce stigma and discrimination in health care setting by 50% in 2020. The objective can be translated into two pillar outcomes.
