At ViiV Healthcare, we are committed to leaving no one living with HIV behind – regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual identification or socioeconomic status. We put community at the center of everything we do.

Our Approach to Community Engagement
ViiV Healthcare’s Positive Action takes an innovative approach to HIV by supporting community programs that disrupt disparities in HIV care.
Through our Positive Action programs, we focus on strengthening and amplifying networks of people living with HIV and those who serve them. Our Positive Action programs work by activating effective linkage and engagement efforts, supporting advocacy efforts that elevate voices of people living with HIV and develop leaders and activate culture to dismantle stigma. We are here until HIV isn’t.
Through our Positive Action for Latinx Men program, we are committed to developing culturally appropriate and inclusive programming to address rising rates of HIV diagnoses in Latinx gay, bisexual, queer and trans men living with and affected by HIV and AIDS.
Through Positive Action Community Grants (PACG), ViiV Healthcare supports community-led efforts to increase engagement in prevention and care, address stigma and build trust in HIV care among communities most disproportionately impacted by HIV and AIDS. Organizations applying to PACG may request funding for General Operating Support, Special Events Sponsorships or Project Support.
Community and Youth Summits
Our annual Youth & Community Summits bring together HIV advocates, public health partners, writers and youth leaders from across North America to educate, engage and foster collaboration within the HIV community and create a forum for community-driven solutions to end the HIV epidemic.
A Positive Life
Each day gives us a new chance to learn and be inspired. And if you’re living with HIV, that knowledge and inspiration can help you face every day with hope, confidence, and positivity.
