HER Voice Fund 2.0

in collaboration with

Ensuring young women’s and girls’ voices have a meaningful voice at key decision-making forums, ViiV Healthcare’s Positive Action is proud to work in collaboration with The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to support the HER Voice Fund 2.0.

About the HER Voice Fund

The Global Fund created the “HER Voice” Fund in recognition of the vital role adolescent girls and young women have to play in driving and shaping the HIV response. By providing small grants to AGYW-led community-based groups - logistical, administrative and language barriers to participation in decision making forums and processes can be overcome so that AGYW influence decision-making spaces.

ViiV Healthcare through its Positive Action programmes is taking the lead to drive community-led responses to HIV and empower AGYW and their communities to tackle the HIV epidemic. Addressing the epidemic amongst AGYW is a key objective of the Positive Action 2020 – 2030 strategy and remains a priority for ViiV Healthcare to ensure that no person living with HIV is left behind.
