Men who have sex with Men (MSM)
We are seeking to support innovative approaches that scale up the delivery of HIV prevention, care and treatment services for MSM. The interventions should specifically address the needs of MSM living with HIV in exercising self-determination and living with dignity. Our current focus under this theme includes:

  • Programmes that work with service providers (such as government clinic staff) to overcome access barriers, as well as supporting MSM communities to increase demand, uptake and effective use of HIV services. We encourage programmes to utilise social media and new technologies, including mobile platforms, to expand the reach of MSM HIV services.
  • Programmes that challenge policies and barriers to treatment by supporting indigenous MSM organisations to decrease stigma, discrimination, and violence against MSM. These interventions should ensure MSM and transgender people are involved in decision making processes on HIV at the national level. This includes advocacy interventions to ensure that national HIV services address the needs of MSM.

Women and young girls
We are seeking innovative interventions that address the needs of young women and girls. We are particularly looking for clear strategies that ensure hard to reach adolescent girls form an integral part of the programme. Our current focus under this theme includes:

  • Interventions that enrol HIV-positive adolescent girls in care and treatment, including adherence support for those newly diagnosed.
  • Livelihood interventions that enable HIV affected or infected girls to have lifestyle choices and have access to treatment for themselves and their families.
  • Innovative interventions that reduce girls and young women’s vulnerability to HIV
  • Prevention interventions targeted at vulnerable adolescent girls in high prevalence settings. This includes programmes addressing gender based violence, access to PEP and access to sexual reproductive health services.

Positive lives
We are seeking programmes that support people living with HIV (PLWH) to live positively and overcome the range of challenges that HIV positive people face including: accessing appropriate treatment and care services, managing side effects of medication, loss of employment and income, stigma and isolation.  Programmes should have a tangible benefit for over 1,000 beneficiaries. Our current focus under this theme includes:

  • Programmes that enable  PLWH to protect/treat themselves and their families regarding HIV
  • Livelihood interventions that facilitate information and skills to link to services including access to, education, nutrition, health or social enterprises.
  • Social integration – psychological support, legal /rights issues  including a system to acknowledge and uphold rights
