HIV & AIDS

HIV remains one of the most serious global health threats of our time. In 2015, 2.1 million people were infected with HIV, and 1.1 million died of AIDS-related causes.

We believe we can end the AIDS epidemic. Since 2010, deaths related to AIDS have dropped by 35% in the part of the world where we work. More people are getting treatment than ever before. By keeping the focus on the needs and rights of key populations, we have the power to prevent new HIV infections and ensure those living with AIDS are not left behind. This is what Pathfinder does.

What We Do

  • Care for pregnant women and new mothers with HIV so to prevent the transmission of HIV from mother to child
  • Deliver comprehensive care to people living with HIV and their families in the privacy and comfort of their homes
  • Support key populations—including men who have sex with men, prisoners, female sex workers, and transgender women—to make sure they can exercise their rights and receive high quality services free from stigma or judgment
  • Promote testing—in communities, facilities, and at hotspots—so people know their status and can initiate treatment as early as possible, a key aspect of UNAIDS’ 90-90-90 goals
  • Strengthen health centers, satellite clinics, and health workers so more people in more places—especially adolescents and those lost-to-follow-up—have access to the HIV services they need
  • Combine HIV services with contraception and maternal and newborn care, recognizing the opportunity to meet people’s needs in a single visit
  • Challenge restrictive policies and inspire governments to uphold the rights of people living with HIV, especially key populations, adolescents, and women
