Positive Action was founded 30 years ago and aims to support innovative projects to address the social, cultural and policy challenges of the global HIV response. By investing in and partnering with communities most affected by HIV, Positive Action strives towards achieving healthy communities in a world free of AIDS.

Positive Action at 30 tells the story of the past three decades, as we look forward to what still needs to be achieved alongside our valued partners to eliminate new HIV transmissions by 2030.
