ViiV Healthcare - Positive Action for MSM & Transgender

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.
These activities include:
  • Our Strategic Grants which inform, strengthen and complement the work of CBOs by focusing on: (i) Evidence Generation; (ii) Capacity Building, and; (iii) Promoting an Inclusive Social & Economic Environment, supporting interventions that are either of a larger scale than our small grants or addressing alternative topics.
  • Our Support Grants which support CBOs during periods of acute hostility to the LGBT community
  • Other grant making initiatives
  • A diverse range of non-financial initiatives including:
    • Novel conference activities
    • Skills-building workshops
    • Forums to engage with other CBOs
    • Support for nascent LGBT-led organisations in particularly hostile environments
    • Our Associates programme (a dedicated programme of grant managers with a diverse skill set related to HIV from across ViiV Healthcare)
Community-led projects that address one or more of the following issues can apply for a total of £50,000 divided over two years:
  • Prevention and testing of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections
  • Access, early linkage to and sustained retention in culturally competent care
  • Supporting adherence
  • Social justice: stigma, discrimination, violence and other human rights violations
  • Sustainable capacity building
  • Community-level collaborations to address socioeconomic drivers of HIV
For the first time this year, we are also inviting collaborative proposals to address socioeconomic drivers of HIV. We are inviting community-based organisations working with MSM and/or transgender people to collaborate with other organisations that address poverty, education, employment and training opportunities, inadequate shelter and food insecurity. These collaborative projects can apply for a total of £70,000 divided over two years.
