Our mission is to support community action to prevent HIV infection, meet the challenges of AIDS, and build healthier communities.
India has made significant strides in addressing HIV/AIDS. However, the journey is not over. Accessing the right services is vital for all those affected, yet it’s all the more difficult for those most in need.
Forced to the margins of our society are the people bearing the brunt of the epidemic: Sex workers. Men who have sex with men (MSM). Transgenders and hijras. People who inject drugs (PWID). Vulnerable youth and women. People from all walks of life living with HIV (PLHIV).
At India HIV/AIDS Alliance, we place equal value on every human life. Fuelled by this conviction and bound together by a singular determination, this is where we work – to foster wellbeing, realise equality, and affirm the dignity of communities most affected by HIV/AIDS, our partners in this journey.
We don’t do it alone, nor could we. Through collaboration and collective action, we help amplify community voices to shape and propel the response to HIV/AIDS in India – from the grassroots to the international stage.
We foster advocacy and favour action, giving neglected priorities the attention they deserve. We provide technical support and build capacity in communities to mitigate the impact of the epidemic and tackle the vulnerabilities that drive it. We are catalysts for sustained change. And we deliver results.
Founded in 1999, Alliance India is a non-governmental organisation operating in partnership with civil society, government and communities to support sustained responses to HIV in India that protect rights and improve health. Complementing the Indian national programme, we build capacity, provide technical support and advocate to strengthen the delivery of effective, innovative, community-based HIV programmes to vulnerable populations affected by the epidemic.
Leveraging our implementation experience, we work closely with the Alliance Regional Technical Support Hub for South Asia to strengthen capacity of civil society organisations, government and the private sector in South Asia to respond more effectively to HIV/AIDS.
An independent national NGO managed and governed wholly in India, Alliance India is also an accredited member of the global network of Linking Organisations of the International HIV/AIDS Alliance.
