LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Ally and anyone else who’s not included) Pride is celebrated every year during the month of June. Pride started as a political protest and over the years has become a celebration and acceptance of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality and increased visibility of the community.

HIV continues to disproportionately impact the LGBTQIA+ community and as a company 100% focused on HIV, we recognise the important role we have to play to support and advocate for the community, and to continue to fight against stigma and discrimination that persists around the world. Not just during Pride month, but throughout the year.

That said, Pride is an important moment for everyone to come together, amplify awareness and show support for the LGBTQIA+ community. We are involved in multiple events over the summer period. Take a look at the events below and follow our social media channels for more details.

We are proud that our company, through our focus on addressing the HIV epidemic, not only supports but is an active ally to LGBTQIA+ communities around the world. We are tearing down walls, and we won’t stop until HIV stigma and discrimination towards the LGBTQIA+ community is a thing of the past.


Positive Action (Global)’s mission is to be a transformational partner that champions people and communities to end AIDS. Our vision is Healthy communities in a world free of AIDS. 

We collaborated with Shutterstock Studios to produce ‘HIV in View’, a first-of-its-kind HIV Gallery which portrays images of real people living with HIV around the world. Images are available to the public for free.

Our access to medicines strategy considers the specific challenges faced in terms of epidemic burden and economic status. 

The strategy includes all low-income, least-developed, middle income and Sub-Saharan African countries (developing countries) where the unmet need for anti-retroviral therapy (ART) is greatest.
