Why We Exist

Africa has less than 20% of the global population and is home to approximately 70% of people living with HIV (PLWH). The landscape of HIV response has changed over the years with the development of rapid response and user-friendly HIV test kits, affordable and effective antiretroviral drugs, and impactful prevention tools such as voluntary medical male circumcision and oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). More still needs to be done to end the AIDS epidemic by addressing challenges in financing, tools and their accessibility to those who need them, community knowledge through increased number of advocates at the local and regional level in HIV Prevention Research Advocacy.
