Positive Action for Europe

Positive Action Europe funds community-based projects that reach those disproportionately affected by HIV, particularly marginalised communities.

ViiV Healthcare is very proud to announce that 14 community-based organisation’s have been awarded grants for the 2017 Positive Action Europe programme.

This year’s programme attracted a total number of 78 applications – an increase from the number of applications received in 2016. The chosen patient advocacy organisations are from Austria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Ireland, Italy, Macedonia, Malta, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, and the UK.

As a testament to the strong impact of Positive Action Europe in previous years, ViiV Healthcare increased funding for this year’s programme cycle. The programme has seen an increase of 150% since the start of the initiative in 2014. A total budget of GBP 250,000 was available to the patient advocacy organisations this year, with each being able to apply for a maximum amount of EUR 25,000.
