Together we can end the epidemic

Aidsfonds works towards the end of AIDS in a world where all people affected by HIV/AIDS have access to prevention, treatment, care and support. We can only stop the epidemic if we focus on the people and regions most affected. 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 epidemic due to stigma and discrimination. Our generation has the ability to stop one of the largest epidemics in history in its tracks. The time to accelerate, boost and focus the worldwide prevention, detection and treatment of HIV/AIDS is now.

Communities first

We know that directly supporting communities that are at the highest risk of infection is the most effective approach in the response to HIV/AIDS. Aidsfonds has always played a pioneering role in focusing the HIV/AIDS response on those population groups who are affected the most by the epidemic due to stigma and discrimination. People in these communities know best what is needed to remove the barriers to prevention and treatment. We make a stand against injustice. We tackle hurdles that others cannot attempt to overcome. We put topics on the agenda that others will not discuss and we give support to people who others dare not support. We put communities first!

Highlights from our work

The HIV/AIDS response has reached a historic tipping point. We possess the knowledge to stop the global AIDS epidemic by 2030, yet new hotspots are still developing. Aidsfonds is convinced that the epidemic can only be stopped if the people and regions most affected by HIV are put at the centre of the AIDS response. Daring to do so will be of decisive importance. This is exactly the strength of Aidsfonds. We focus on those population groups most affected by AIDS due stigma and discrimination. To end AIDS we find bold solutions with and within local communities, we work on the basis of what has been proven effective in the AIDS response, we advocate worldwide to keep AIDS high on the political agenda and fund research towards the ultimate goal: a cure to HIV.

Knowledge & learning

We are experts and pioneers in the response to HIV/AIDS. We tirelessly seek new solutions and invest in pioneering scientific research. We mobilise politicians and Dutch society, and develop state-of-the-art interventions. Aidsfonds aims to show that what we do works. We invest in promising innovative projects and methods and share what we have learned with a broader audience by publishing reports, manuals, factsheets on the work we do and the facts we discover. Through the development of useful data tools to share ‘big data’ on the epidemic we facilitate data-informed programming in combating the epidemic.
