Every day Aidsfonds works all over the world to end AIDS before 2030. Wherever we work, we know we must accelerate, focus and boost our efforts now in order to achieve this ultimate goal. We have the knowledge to end the epidemic. What is lacking is funding, awareness and political will to stop the epidemic in its tracks for good. For years, Aidsfonds has been playing a pioneering role in focusing the HIV/AIDS response on those population groups who are affected the most by the HIV epidemic due to stigma and discrimination. 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!
Why it works
We are experts and pioneers in the response to HIV/AIDS. We tirelessly seek new solutions and invest in pioneering scientific research. We mobilise national and international politicians and Dutch society, and develop state-of-the-art interventions. We work with a focus on the groups and communities most affected and we enable ordinary people to discuss subjects that will make a difference. We have 3 decades of experience in the AIDS response, by reaching and involving the groups and communities that are most affected. We work on the basis of what has been proven effective and never on the basis of assumptions. Research and monitoring and evaluation of our activities is therefore an essential part of all our projects.
