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.

People, partners, progress

At the core of this flagship foundation is our commitment to putting people and communities first, strengthening capacity and collaborating strategically. Positive Action at 30 will celebrate:

30 Years of Investment in Communities

Since Positive Action launched, it has supported a broad range of global organisations and communities and impacted thousands of people living with HIV. Today, we are offering a glimpse into the experience of employees, people living with HIV, community organisations and others who have played key roles in Positive Action’s activities over the past 30 years.
