STOP AIDS NOW! -> Aidsfonds
As of 1 December 2016, Aids Fonds and STOP AIDS NOW! are going forward under the name Aidsfonds.
Why one brand?
UNAIDS has adopted a fast track strategy to put an end to AIDS by 2030. And the coming five years are of vital importance. We can stop the epidemic only if we focus on the people and regions most affected. And that is exactly where STOP AIDS NOW! and Aids Fonds enhance each other's strengths. We have been working together for some time and within the same organisation.
Injustice hinders an effective AIDS response. With one name, we have a louder voice and more influence as we make a stand against injustice. Combining our knowledge and expertise will increase the impact of our work.
We work together with you to focus on those population groups who are affected the most by HIV due to stigma and discrimination, and who are ignored by other organisations and local government. Such as children, mothers and young people in developing countries. And also people living with HIV, sex workers, men who have sex with men and people who use drugs all over the world.
How will this affect you?
We are as passionate and reliable as ever. We will continue to work with you to achieve maximum effect in our projects. We will still use all our knowledge and experience, while having the courage to demonstrate the success of an unconventional approach. Sharing knowledge will help us to speed up the response to AIDS. We are currently redesigning our website to provide an even wider range of knowledge tools that will increase the impact of your work. You will also be able to use this new site to share your own knowledge tools.
As Aidsfonds we can give you more support with your advocacy and capacity building in local communities. It will enable us to give a louder voice to the groups most affected.
We are at aturning point in the AIDS response. The coming five years are crucial for removing all the barriers that make people vulnerable to HIV or prevent themgetting treatment. That's why Aidsfonds is determined to work with you to fast-track our efforts to put an end to AIDS in 2030.
