For many years, AidsFonds has played a pioneering role in focusing the AIDS response on those population groups who are affected the most by the HIV epidemic due to stigma and discrimination. AidsFonds make a stand against injustice. AidsFonds tackle hurdles that others cannot, will not or dare not attempt to overcome. AidsFonds put topics on the agenda that others cannot, will not or dare not discuss and Aidsfonds give support to people who others cannot, will not or dare not support.
AidsFonds believes in local community solutions. People in the community know what does and doesn’t work in practice and are aware of the needs, sensitivities and challenges. That’s why the organization always put local communities at the heart of AidsFonds programmes.
AidsFonds develops innovative approaches and put them into practice. And the organization funds promising projects. To find solutions for problems that have not yet been tackled.
AidsFonds works on the basis of what has been proven effective in the AIDS response and never on the basis of assumptions. Research is therefore an essential part of all AidsFonds projects. the organization also funds scientific research in the field of HIV/AIDS.
AidsFonds lobbies worldwide to put AIDS high on the agenda and to get sufficient funding. And the organization shares any insights the organization gains. This empowers AidsFonds partners and gives people the opportunity to stand up for their rights.
AidsFonds believes in a combination approach to a complex issue. To respond to AIDS in all different ways, the organization is both a source of funding and developer of AidsFonds own projects with funds from other donors.
