- Positive Action for Children Fund
In collaboration with our partners, our aim is to provide support and deliver prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) services, which empower mothers and children across the globe. Every year, we continue to form new partnerships with community focused organisations; who strive to alleviate the devastating effects of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
The Positive Action for Children Fund is an integral part of ViiV Healthcare's commitment to communities affected by HIV and AIDS. In 2009, the company committed to invest £50 million ($80 million) in the Fund over ten years.
Since its launch in March 2010, the Positive Action for Children Fund has committed £10 million on 117 projects in 21 countries. Our partner organisations demonstrate their commitment and dedication to addressing mother-to-child transmission of HIV; through innovation and by maximising local resources made available through various health systems.
Such work is closely aligned with UNAIDS' Global Plan towards the elimination of new HIV infections among children by 2015 and keeping their mothers alive1 and works toward achieving the Millennium Development Goals set to reduce child mortality and improve maternal health.
The Positive Action for Children Fund currently provides grants to support diverse programmes globally and offers a Technical Assistance programme through our partners to support smaller community organisations. Through the fund, these organisations can continue to support affected communities and mitigate the impact of HIV and AIDS on children and their families. The hope is to ensure that those communities deliver sustainable projects that reach individuals at risk from or coping with HIV infection.
