Using high-level advocacy, strategic communications, and creative legal approaches, we tackle the root causes that have turned HIV into a global pandemic.
At AIDS-Free World, advocacy means analyzing the global AIDS epidemic as it’s refracted through a prism of injustice: discrimination and violence against women and girls, against LGBT persons, against persons with disabilities, and against the poor and the marginalized. We shine a spotlight on these issues, and work to address them.
