In a press release, the United Nations Joint Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) welcomed the creation of the new office and described its purpose:

The new office will provide guidance to US Ambassadors to more effectively support countries, to strengthen the sustainability of health programmes and to continue to promote a vision for shared responsibility and global solidarity.
