Background
The Bureau for Development Policy (BDP) is UNDP’s policy Bureau and backbone of the global practices. BDP has a key role to play in helping country offices to accelerate human development through strengthening the practice areas within UNDP’s programmes. BDP supports the development and design of projects that are responsive, effective and contribute to the national-level policies and results. Driven by demand, BDP provides the tools, analysis and capacities that country offices need to make a real difference in UNDP’s practice areas.

BDP support of UNDP’s Strategic Plan 2008-2011 and its 6 thematic areas (Poverty Reduction, Governance, Environment and Energy, HIV/AIDS, Capacity Development, and Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment) together with the regionalization process require it to support a strong and vibrant practice architecture which can ensure that UNDP, at all levels, benefits from consistent and coherent policy direction, rigorous quality standards and valuable service platforms

HIV, Health and Development Approach
UNDP is a founding cosponsor of the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), a partner of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria, and a co-sponsor of several other international health partnerships. UNDP’s work on HIV, health and development leverages UNDP’s core strengths and mandates in human development, governance and capacity development to complement the efforts of specialist health-focused UN agencies. UNDP delivers three types of support to countries in HIV, health and development... UNDP also promotes specific action on the needs and rights of women and girls as they relate to HIV.
