Community Emergency Response Fund

ViiV Healthcare’s COVID-19 Community Emergency Response Fund supported community-based organisations in their work to address the specific challenges that have arisen for people living with HIV or affected by HIV as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Proposals were received in the following thematic areas:

  • Support for ongoing access to critical HIV prevention, care and treatment services (adherence support interventions, psychosocial support, strengthening access to antiretrovirals, strategies for hard-to-reach populations, etc.)
  • Capacity building to support the transition of service delivery from face-to-face service delivery to home or digital services etc.
  • Short term payments for critical community staff who are responding to COVID-19 challenges (salaries, airtime, data, transport costs etc.)
  • Community monitoring and community feedback mechanisms on impact of COVID-19 HIV services and support.

All recommended applicants have now been informed of the outcome. If you have not heard from the Positive Action team you can assume that your application has been unsuccessful.


Amplify Impact enables the accompaniment, collaboration and learning needed to achieve the goals of the ViiV Healthcare Positive Action strategy, “Healthy Communities in a world free of AIDS”.

The Paediatric Breakthrough partners, working with government and community, aim to locate, link, treat and retain mothers and children at risk or living with HIV.

Positive Action Challenges seek to find innovative solutions to a specific issue related to the HIV and AIDS epidemic.

Community Strategic Initiatives seek to enable people and communities to improve the quality of life of people living with those most at risk of HIV.
