Millions awarded to programs fighting HIV/AIDS
A total of 38 different organizations are working to resolve the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic. These organizations are using important, innovative approaches to fight the disease around the world.
"Our grantees are on the front lines of the HIV epidemic," Scott Campbell, EJAF executive director, said. "As one of the largest funders in the world dedicated to ending AIDS, we are committed to making real-time investments that address the latest trends in the epidemic and also providing ongoing support for tried and true strategies that improve access to health care and ensure basic human rights for people most affected by the epidemic."
These awards mark the first of two grant cycles completed in 2016. All of the grants build upon the foundation’s sustained work to support various organizations located in the Americas as well as the Caribbean.
"For nearly 25 years, the Elton John AIDS Foundation has been committed to aggressively confronting the HIV/AIDS epidemic where it exists," EJAF Founder Elton John said. "We are proud of this newest round of investments, in which we fund advocacy and services in over 30 locations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic."
