The Life-cycle Approach
The risks of HIV infection, the challenges of accessing services and the solutions to these challenges, change at different stages of life. To better understand the complex dynamics of the HIV epidemic and to provide tailor-made solutions, Aidsfonds uses a 'life-cycle' approach for programming
The Stepped Care Model - youth-centred SRHR services
Everybody is different. So young people have different kinds of issues and information needs when it comes to sexual and reproductive health. The Aidsfonds Stepped Care Model organizes online and offline SRHR services in a meaningful way, addressing young people's different needs.
Get to know the Love Alliance, a new five-year programme (2021-2025), based on an unwavering commitment to protecting, promoting and fulfilling sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) globally, unifying people who use drugs, sex workers and LGBTIQ+ movements, and amplifying the diversity of voices in these communities.
Each day, 269 children die of AIDS. Each week, more than 4800 young women under 25 years become infected with HIV. The risk of acquiring HIV is 21 times higher for sex workers. Worldwide, only 75% of people living with HIV are accessing treatment.
Our generation has the ability to stop one of the largest epidemics in history in its tracks. The time to break down persistent barriers that hinder worldwide prevention and treatment of HIV and AIDS is now.

Directly supporting communities that are at the highest risk of HIV infection is the most effective approach. When communities have space, capacity, and resources to mobilise, great strides can be made. Communities themselves hold governments accountable, remove barriers to HIV prevention and treatment, fight injustice and inequalities, and ensure the most vulnerable groups are included in the HIV response. Invest in communities now! The communities covered in our work are children, LGBT people, people living with HIV, people who use drugs, sex workers, women, and young people.
