08 February 2019
From February 14th, we are going to look very different. In fact, the changes will be among the most significant in our organisation’s 25-year history. We have not taken the decision to change lightly – we took on board the views of a wide range of partners and we have been bold in acting on their feedback.
First, let’s be clear. We will continue to focus our work on addressing the HIV epidemic and our commitment to a future free from AIDS for everyone, everywhere, remains as strong as ever.
We will remain strongly engaged in HIV prevention, in SRHR, in human rights and equality, and in our work with marginalised people including those from what we have previously referred to as key populations – sex workers, transgender people, men who have sex with men and people who use drugs as well as adolescents and young people and those living with HIV.
Looking to the future, we want to up our game. We want to ignite innovations that help to address the HIV epidemic as it evolves, with a particular focus on overcoming the social, legal and political barriers that increase the risk of marginalised people dying from an AIDS-related illness. We also want to ensure a focus on AIDS within the broader global health dialogue, including in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals and Universal Health Coverage.
We are looking forward to an exciting future with our current partners and through collaborations with new ones. Above all, we know that one organisation alone cannot end AIDS; it requires the energy, expertise and ideas of a diverse set of partners.
