With its comprehensive coverage of political and security matters, human rights issues, economic and social questions, legal issues, and institutional, administrative and budgetary matters, the Yearbook of the United Nations stands as the most authoritative reference work on the activities and concerns of the Organization. Fully indexed, the Yearbook includes the texts of all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions and decisions, putting all of these in a narrative context of United Nations consideration, decision and action.



Health, food and nutrition

In 2012, the United Nations continued to promote health, food security and nutrition. A record 9.7 million people in low-and middle-income countries had received antiretroviral therapy by the end of 2012. In spite of the significant progress made, aids remained a global challenge, with an estimated 35.3 million people living with HIV, 2.3 million people newly infected, and 1.6 million dying of aids-related illnesses during the year. The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (unaids) collaborated with its co-sponsors and other relevant organizations and bodies of the UN system to implement a coordinated response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. During the year, UN-Women became the eleventh co-sponsor of unaids.
