The Positive Action Europe programme seeks to fund community-based projects that reach those most affected by HIV, particularly in marginalised or vulnerable populations. The programme uses a targeted approach to identify and respond to HIV-related issues at a local-level, supporting projects that are specifically designed to tackle the drivers of HIV in local regions.

The Positive Action Programme is an immensely important initiative that aims to fight against stigma and discrimination especially at a grass roots level, where ethnic, geographical or socio-economic disparities affect those living with HIV the most.

Grants will be given to community and grassroots programmes that meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Promotes testing and earlier diagnosis of HIV
  • Supports HIV-related treatment literacy, education and knowledge building
  • Fights stigma and discrimination
  • Supports the ageing PLHIV
  • Drives peer support and education
  • Puts the patient at the centre of services
