International HIV/AIDS Alliance

The International HIV/AIDS Alliance (the Alliance) is a global partnership of 38 nationally-based linking organisations, seven regional technical support hubs and an international secretariat, working to support community action on AIDS in developing countries.

Our sixth strategic framework, HIV and healthy communities (2010-2012), proposes three aims: to protect human rights, increase access to health services and support secure livelihoods. In this new strategy, we intend to expand our work in the countries where we are already working, with a strong focus on Africa, thereby eliminating any start-up costs. This and other efficiencies will enable us to achieve our 2012 target of reaching 4.5 million people each year with services.

To achieve the three aims, we are pursuing four Strategic Responses:

  1. Scale up integrated programming
  2. Support well-functioning community-based organisations
  3. Help form engaged, inclusive societies
  4. Create a learning Alliance

We believe that the contribution older people make to society is invaluable. Yet older people remain some of the poorest and most neglected in the world. We are committed to helping them claim their rights, challenge discrimination and overcome poverty. Our vision is of a world in which all older people can lead dignified, active, healthy and secure lives. We work with our partners to ensure that people everywhere understand how much older people contribute to society and that they must enjoy their right to healthcare, social services and economic and physical security.
