COVID-19 and HIV funding opportunties

As the COVID-19 pandemic is progressing around the world, we see more local partners being affected throughout their operations. Luckily there are foundations providing emergency funding. Aidsfonds keeps an updated overview of funding opportunities out there.

Emergency Support Fund for Key Populations in Eastern Europe and Central Asia

With these grants, the Emergency Support Fund supports organisations representing key populations that face difficult circumstances due to legal barriers, stigma and discrimination, financial challenges, and political restrictions. Support will be given to organisations carrying out activities that ensure access to HIV prevention, treatment and/or services for key populations, or projects protecting the human rights of key populations.

Recently closed calls for proposals:

Stay On - 2019 Call for Proposals on lifelong care for people living with HIV

Sustainably retaining people living with HIV in care in Ethiopia, Mozambique, Nigeria, and/or South Africa

This call looks at the future. With a growing number of people living with HIV (PLHIV) on treatment, we now broaden our focus from saving lives to sustaining our successes for the next decades. This must be accomplished in line with the Universal Health Coverage commitments.

With this call, Aidsfonds aims to support civil society organisations to develop, implement, and monitor an intervention to sustainably retain PLHIV in care. Of course this should have a strong focus on those most vulnerable to drop-out.

The selected projects will soon be announced
