HIV does not exist in isolation. HIV prevention, treatment, care and support are situated within and influenced by wider economic, social and political dynamics. As development interventions increasingly adopt a more holistic, person centred approach, many donors and implementers are beginning to integrate HIV within sexual and reproductive health and rights, health and wider development programmes.
STOPAIDS is working to ensure the global HIV response is meaningfully and successfully integrated into existing policy and funding priorities, related to health, human rights and broader development.
A strong HIV and AIDS response must be underpinned by access to affordable medicines and guided by effective global health governance. We therefore influence UK leadership on access to medicines and strengthen the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria as well as UNITAID through our roles on both Boards and delegations of these multi-laterals.
