The International HIV/AIDS Alliance

Our mission
The mission of the International HIV/AIDS Alliance is to support communities to reduce the spread of HIV and to meet the challenges of AIDS.

We are working to prevent HIV infection; improve access to HIV treatment, care and support; and lessen the impact of HIV and AIDS worldwide, particularly among the most vulnerable and marginalised.

Our vision
The vision of the International HIV/AIDS Alliance is of a world in which people do not die of AIDS.

For us, this means a world where communities have brought HIV under control by preventing its transmission and live healthier lives through access to comprehensive HIV prevention, care, support and treatment services.

Our values
As we work to reduce the spread of HIV and meet its challenges, our actions will always be directed by the following guiding values:

· The lives of all human beings are of equal value. People’s vulnerability to HIV is increased by unequal power relations, particularly arising from economic poverty and social marginalisation. Gender, religion, class, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, disability, drug use and sex work are all potential factors shaping unequal power relations, human rights abuses, and vulnerability.

· Everyone has the right to access the HIV information and services they need. People have the right to accurate and complete information as well as to comprehensive HIV prevention programmes. People have the right to access HIV care and treatment, and appropriate health and social services. This includes HIV treatment and palliative care for those with AIDS-defining illnesses, and substitution treatment for those who are drug dependent.
