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.

Girls Count; Count Girls
June 12, 2018 — On this World Day Against Child Labour, we remember the millions of girls in child “marriages” who have been missing for decades from global statistics and told by the international community that their forced labour doesn’t count. (Photo: Alexandra Lande / Shutterstock.com)

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.
