On 8 and 9 April 2024, Ms Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), paid a working visit to the Principality.

Ms Carole Lanteri, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Monaco to the United Nations Office at Geneva, and representatives of the Fight Aids Monaco Association.
