World AIDS Day

"The World AIDS Campaign has been established to strengthen and connect the advocacy and campaigning activities of civil society that target governments and other stakeholders to deliver on their promises and commitments on HIV and AIDS. Whether that is with politicians, policy makers, the donor community or those countries most affected by HIV or indeed a multilateral agency or civil society, the aim is to create a unified voice on the need to take the action necessary to scale up the response to HIV.

Our Objectives are:

1. To catalyse and strengthen national, inclusive campaigns for accountability on universal access;
2. To increase involvement in campaigning for accountability on universal access within and across international constituency-based networks; and
3. To increase access to resources and information to support more effective, campaigning for accountability on universal access.

The World AIDS Campaign is a global coalition of national, regional and international civil society groups united by the call for governments to honour their AIDS commitments under the slogan “Stop AIDS. Keep the Promise.” The campaign is governed by a steering committee of global constituency-based networks and supported by a team of support staff based primarily in Cape Town, South Africa and partially in Amsterdam, The Netherlands."
