AIDS Fund (AIDS-Fondet)
The AIDS Foundation works with HIV and AIDS and related areas of importance for HIV and AIDS, both nationally and internationally. Every year, HIV and AIDS require the lives of many people worldwide, and people living with HIV or affected by HIV still face prejudice and discrimination. The AIDS Foundation works to prevent HIV. We work for HIV testing and effective HIV treatment, and for new prevention methods to be developed and used. We support research in a cure for HIV. At the same time, we are focused on strengthening the rights of the most vulnerable target groups, fighting stigma and discrimination, and removing barriers to effective HIV action, whether from sexual health or social or political causes, in gender identity, in sexuality or migrant status.
Historically, the AIDS Foundation has grown out of the activism that the AIDS epidemic created in the 1980s. We are shaped by the indignation caused by the disease in those affected by the epidemic. We are inspired by their relentless determination to improve the situation, and stand on the foundation of their work as we set course for the future.
Values we aim for
Historically and organizationally, we rely on inclusion, and we insist on combating structures that contribute to stigmatization and discrimination. We are based on solid experience as well as evidence of what works, and we are also the ones who try new methods and dare to learn from it. We know that we cannot fulfill our task without close cooperation with our target groups and partners. The AIDS Foundation works on the basis of our communities, so that our work has relevance and credibility with our partners and target groups, as well as in the environments in which our target groups are located.See more
