Established in 1993, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance (the Alliance) is a global partnership of nationally-based organizations working to support community action on AIDS.
These national partners help local community groups and other non-governmental organisations to take action on AIDS, and are supported by technical expertise, policy work and fundraising.
To reduce the spread of HIV and meet the challenges of AIDS. We are committed to prevent HIV infection; improve access to treatment, care and support; and lessen the impact of AIDS.
To make a real difference, the Alliance supports integrated responses to HIV/AIDS that combine preventing HIV infection, facilitating access to treatment, care and support, and lessening the impact of AIDS on individuals, families and communities. We emphasise the importance of working with people who are most likely to affect or be affected by the spread of HIV/AIDS. These are often people from marginalised groups who are the most vulnerable and the hardest to reach.
The Alliance currently works in over 25 countries – those threatened by emerging HIV epidemics as well as those already heavily affected.
In 2005 alone, the Alliance reached 31 million people through its programs and information activities. Many of these people were from the poorest and most vulnerable communities.
Since 1994, we have channelled $140 million to more than 40 developing countries in support of 3,000 community projects.
