Positive Action for People with HIV

The program targets its funds towards projects that delivering greater and meaningful involvement of people living with HIV, build capacity in the community, tackle stigma and discrimination, and test innovations in education, care and treatment.

Positive Action

HIV and AIDS are social issues as well as medical challenges. Knowing that HIV is transmitted by sexual intercourse, sharing needles and from mother to baby is not enough in itself to guarantee the changes in behavior that can protect people from infection. Nor does the growing availability of ARV drugs around the world mean that everyone who needs treatment will come forward, that they can afford blood tests or good nutrition, or that they understand these drugs must be taken at the right time every day of their lives to avoid dangerous drug resistance.

Partnership objectives:

  • Delivering greater and meaningful involvement of people living with HIV.
  • Building capacity in grassroots communities.
  • Preventing HIV.
  • Tackling stigma and discrimination.
  • Testing innovations in education, care and treatment.
