About

With five new HIV infections for every three people that receive treatment it is time to put prevention at the core of the HIV response.

What’s Preventing Prevention?’ is a campaign of the International HIV/AIDS Alliance. We want to see communities around the world able to prevent the spread of HIV.

That’s why we’re calling on donors and governments to guarantee a more effective HIV prevention response that enables those at higher risk of HIV to access prevention services and programmes and realise their rights.

The end of HIV within a generation is now possible if world leaders make it their priority, investing in what works and putting human rights at the centre of their action.

 

What do we want?

The campaign is calling for:

- All national plans for  HIV and AIDS to adopt the principles of a human rights based approach to HIV and be fully funded

- Laws that protect key populations such as people who use drugs, men who have sex with men, transgender people or sex workers from human rights violations, discrimination and lack of access to HIV programs and services. Find out more >>

- Donors and governments to prioritize key populations, community-based responses and mobilization, and human rights in their strategies to fight HIV and AIDS. Find out more >>

- The Global Fund, a key actor in fighting HIV and promoting the human rights of those affected by HIV, that is fully funded to scale up its global response.

- We want the participation of communities at higher risk of HIV in decision-making around HIV prevention programmes, including in all Global Fund Country Coordination Mechanisms and  in civil society participation in outlining National Strategic Plans on HIV and AIDS. Find out more>>

The International HIV/AIDS Alliance is a global partnership of over 36 nationally-based linking organisations working to support community action on AIDS in developing countries. Learn more about the work of the Alliance.
