Grant applications for RADIAN are now open

The global community now has the tools to meaningfully address new HIV infections; however, HIV is on the rise in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA).

To address the challenges in EECA and ensure no one is left behind in the global effort to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic, the Elton John AIDS Foundation and Gilead Sciences have partnered together in a ground-breaking initiative called RADIAN. RADIAN aims to meaningfully address new HIV infections and deaths from AIDS related illnesses in EECA through focused action, investment and resourcing to improve the quality of prevention and care for people at risk of or living with HIV in the region.

RADIAN is a collaboration between Gilead Sciences Europe Limited and Elton John AIDS Foundation. Funding is provided through grants, which are assessed and administered by the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Gilead has no involvement in the selection and assessment of award applicants and winners.
