We’ve learnt that campaigning works. Every time a decision gets made, those in power think hard about the consequences of their choice. Our campaigning makes sure that they have to factor our voices into the equation. Find out here how you can get involved and help us end AIDS by 2030.

Millions of people around the world are missing the medicines they need either because they are too expensive or they simply don’t exist.

Without access to affordable, high quality medicine we won’t be able to end infectious disease epidemics like HIV & AIDS.

We need a health innovation model that delivers the medicines that people need at prices we can afford. We need a people’s prescription

We’ve joined together with the Missing Medicines coalition – a network of UK organisations fighting for affordable medicines globally – to come up with a set of proposals to take to MPs who can speak to their leadership about the urgency of the issue.

We can achieve an end to AIDS by 2030, but It Ain’t Over. That’s the central message of our It Ain’t Over campaign that pushes the UK Government to stay committed to the global HIV and AIDS response and be leaders in achieving a world without AIDS by 2030.

The opportunity to make AIDS history is within our reach, but we risk undoing all of our hard work. Governments and charities are not paying attention to HIV and AIDS like they used to. Complacency is a killer. If we don’t step it up, it’s millions of young people that will suffer. Over 2 million people acquired HIV in 2015. 17 million people are now receiving treatment, but 20 million people are still waiting. AIDS-related illnesses are now the second biggest killer of adolescents in the world – in 2000 it wasn’t even in the top ten.

We know what we have to do. We have the tools but we need serious political will and funding from the UK
Government to finish the job. Now is the time for us to lead the world and make AIDS history.

Check out our current General Election 2019 Campaign to see how you can ensure the next government champions the HIV response.
