Red Ribbon Award

On this year's World AIDS Day, UNAIDS, the organising partners of the 21st International AIDS Conference and civil society partners are jointly announcing a global call for nominations for the 2016 Red Ribbon Award. The award, which will be presented in July 2016 at the International AIDS Conference (AIDS2016) in Durban, South Africa, will be given to ten community based organizations that have shown outstanding community leadership and action on AIDS. 

The five award categories, based on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are:
  • a) Good health and well-being (SDG3)
  • b) Reduced inequalities (SDG10)
  • c) Gender equality (SDG5)
  • d) Just, peaceful & inclusive societies (SDG16)
  • e) Global partnership (SDG17)
The selected community organizations will benefit from international visibility and an invitation to participate in AIDS2016. Additionally, each recipient of the award will receive a US$10,000 grant. We call out to civil society partners around the world to spread the word that the Red Ribbon Award 2016 nomination process is now open and that their nominations of exceptional community-based organizations are welcome.
The Red Ribbon Award 2016 will be given to community groups for outstanding leadership in responding to AIDS in one or more of the following categories based on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
  • a) Good health and well-being (SDG3):
  • - Children, adolescents and adults living with HIV can access testing, know their status and are immediately offered and sustained on affordable quality treatment;
