UNAIDS
UNAIDS - Global & Regional Activities for Intensived Response to HIV/AIDS. The objective of UNAIDS is to lead, strengthen, and support an expanded response to the AIDS epidemic. Since its establishment in 1996, UNAIDS has taken the lead in tracking and fighting HIV/AIDS, which is one of the biggest threats to human development and to poverty alleviation efforts. Although financing for the response to AIDS has increased significantly, it falls short of the scale necessary to achieve the MDG of reversing the epidemic by 2015. Governments, donors, international organizations and civil society have endorsed the “Three Ones” principles and the recommendations of the Global Task Team (GTT) on Improving AIDS Coordination among International Donors and Multilateral Institutions in recognition of the need to use available resources more effectively and efficiently, and by coordinating and harmonizing the efforts of the many players involved in the response to HIV and AIDS. The proposed grant will support UNAIDS’ efforts to
  1. reduce the transmission of HIV/AIDS;
  2. provide affordable, cost-effective care and treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS; and
  3. mitigate the socioeconomic and human impact of HIV/AIDS on individuals, households, and communities.
International AIDS Vaccine Initiative
INTERNATIONAL AIDS VACCINE INITIATIVE (IAVI). IAVI is a global not-for-profit organization working to accelerate the development of a vaccine to prevent HIV infection and AIDS. Founded in 1996 and operational in 23 countries, IAVI and its network of collaborators research and develop vaccine candidates. IAVI also advocates for a vaccine to be global priority and works to assure that a future vaccine will be accessible to all who need it. IAVI’s mission is to help end the spread of AIDS, one of the most catastrophic poverty-related diseases of modern times, by ensuring the development of a safe, effective preventive vaccine for use where the epidemic is most devastating to communities and economies. As a specialized global initiative, IAVI models key components of effective multilateral development approaches, including expanding and strengthening public and private partnerships across sectors in the North and the South; an emphasis on building local capacity for and ownership of vaccine research, policy and advocacy in developing countries; a results oriented approach with robust systems for performance monitoring and assessment; and conformance with the recently crafted global HIV/AIDS vaccine blueprint (the Global HIV/AIDS Vaccine Enterprise Strategic Scientific Plan).
