Grants and funding

Grants and funding

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). Aidsfonds 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.

Aidsfonds funding is distributed via assessment procedures following calls for proposals on specific themes, often with a regional focus.

Any funding possibilities will be published here.

Call for Applications on Emergencies threatening HIV service provision to key populations in Eastern Europe and Central Asia

Organisations from 10 countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia can receive small grants with a maximum amount of €5.000,- per grant. With these small grants Aidsfonds and AFEW International will support organisations representing key populations in surviving in difficult situations that they face 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.

Organisations that meet the criteria are invited to apply for a small grant. The online application portal will be open from the 1st of December, 2018. Applications can be submitted on an on-going basis and the first grants will be awarded in January 2019.
