We fight systemic inequalities that have allowed HIV
to flourish. 


Using high-level advocacy, strategic communications, and creative legal approaches, we tackle the root causes that have turned HIV into a global pandemic.



Our Work

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.

Zero accountability for
UNAIDS sexual abuse crisis

May 4, 2018: This week the UN announced that it would “reopen” the case against Loures, this time with the UN’s New York-based Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) as investigators and the Director-General of the World Health Organization as the judge. In a new statement, Code Blue cries foul. We believe WHO’s Internal Oversight Service must become the subject of a new investigation, UNAIDS management must also be investigated, and, most important, Member States must monitor the investigations in real-time.
