Aidsfonds believes in local community solutions. People in the community know what does and doesn’t work in practice and are aware of the needs, sensitivities and challenges. Aidsfonds works closely with those that are most vulnerable to HIV and other STIs and most affected by stigma and discrimination. It is essential that education, testing, treatment and healthcare are accessible to everyone, people should feel encouraged and free to use these services.
