Funder Initiatives

FCAA’s member-led approach to programming helps to connect data and funders to brainstorm and identify solutions to emerging and ongoing challenges in funding the global response to HIV. These funder initiatives are examples of current internal (FCAA-led) and external (funder-led) strategies to engage in.

From PEPFAR to PrEP, we have made incredible advancements across the world to prevent and treat HIV these last 40 years – we finally have the medical knowledge and tools to bring an end to AIDS in our lifetimes. Yet intersecting structural and societal barriers – including stigma and discrimination, economic disparities, racial injustice, gender inequality, criminalisation, migration, geopolitical conflict, and inequitable access to healthcare – conspire to keep the vision of a post-AIDS future out of reach. Indeed, the experiences of people living with and vulnerable to HIV bring to light what is often hiding in the shadows. For example, we commonly see new HIV transmissions climb within countries impacted by political repression, anti-LGBTQ+ policies, war, and other crises.

FCAA will soon relaunch an Advocacy Network to regularly convene funders and stakeholders to keep a pulse on the political landscape surrounding our work, and to understand where, and when, to weigh in as a collective membership.

Southern HIV Impact Fund

Originally convened by FCAA and facilitated by AIDS United — and with the founding support of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, Ford Foundation, Gilead Sciences, Johnson & Johnson, Levi Strauss Foundation, Merck, ViiV Healthcare, and an anonymous donor — the Southern HIV Impact Fund seeks to coordinate a philanthropic response and mobilize attention and resources to address HIV in the southern US in partnership with community-based organizations.

FCAA continues to monitor the depth and reach of HIV-related philanthropy to the U.S. South via its annual resource tracking publication.
