ViiV Healthcare - Positive Action for Girls & Women

Positive Action for Girls and Women aims to tackle the harmful practices and norms that limit the aspirations of girls and women and increase their vulnerability to HIV.  We fund projects which focus on the reducing the commoditisation of girls as well as supporting projects and organisations that advocate for girls and women.
This call is focused on non-governmental and community-based organisations that can deliver change at a community level thanks to their links with or representation of the communities affected. Please note: the maximum funding available is £50,000 over two years.
