New opportunity to develop innovative harm reduction lead by community – the ViiV Healthcare Positive Action HIV Challenge
You can apply for a seed award of £25,000 to pilot a brand-new idea or a grand award of £75,000 to scale up an existing project.
Challenge question: Can you design or scale up a community? If the answer is yes, check the following inclusion criteria.
Successful new ideas or existing projects will:
- Be community or peer-led.
- Meaningfully engage and involve the community of people who inject drugs in the design and delivery of their initiative.
- Promote non-stigmatising, inclusive and comprehensive care for people who use drugs.
- Describe how harm reduction services can be integrated into existing community or local public health HIV support services and/or how HIV services can be integrated into harm reduction services.
- Be able to demonstrate how the initiative drives increased and sustained access to HIV services and support through addressing current barriers e.g. outlining how existing policy, regulatory and programmatic barriers have been addressed to enhance accessibility and quality.
- Demonstrate how the project can be sustained beyond the award.
This is a global call and as such all innovative, relevant ideas and existing initiatives are welcome!

Services for migrants and refugees from Ukraine – HIV/TB care with a focus on key populations
Due to the increasing flows of refugees from Ukraine because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EECA Regional Platform created a spreadsheet to fill contacts details of face-to-face and online services for refugees and migrants (with a focus on HIV/TB care and key population groups).
If you provide such services or know verified providers, please fill out the spreadsheet at your earliest convenience, and, please, update it as more verified information is available. These can be services for national citizens if they are also accessible to international migrants and refugees.
