Aidsfonds is a relatively small private foundation in the global AIDS response. It emphasises innovative projects where its engagement and impact can best be leveraged. Aidsfonds focuses especially on groups that have the greatest support needs, but which receive the least support.
Thus, when choosing partners, community organisations and organisations of PLHIV and other vulnerable groups are preferred above other recipient entities (who may have more funding opportunities). Aids Fonds has adopted the GIPA principle, which means that PLHIV should be involved at every level of decision-making, including the conceptualisation, development and implementation of projects supported by Aidsfonds.
