Positive Action for MSM & Transgender People

Supporting community-led efforts to address HIV and AIDS, promote sexual health & wellbeing and advance social & economic justice for MSM and transgender people

Positive Action for MSM & Transgender People aims to improve sexual health & wellbeing and advance social and economic justice for men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people in resource-limited and hostile settings. By doing so, we aim to build evidence that shows that community-level interventions which address HIV in combination with other holistic needs can significantly reduce new HIV infections, STI prevalence and AIDS-related mortality.

To learn more about our approach, please read our Strategy Paper.

Our small grants programme is our flagship programme, committing a minimum of £1.25million each year to initiatives led by and focused on either MSM or transgender people. Our second of two calls for community-led small grants proposals in 2018 will open in early September.  

We aim to let applicants know whether their application has been provisionally selected by our Regional Community Review Boards in the 3 months following the application deadline. (Please note that any provisionally selected applications will not be finally approved until our due diligence processes have concluded and have been reviewed and approved by ViiV Healthcare).
