HIV remains one of the most serious global health threats of our time. In 2017, 1.8 million people were infected with HIV, and 940,000 died of AIDS-related causes.

We believe we can end the AIDS epidemic. Between 2010 and 2019, there had been a 23% decline in new HIV infections globally. More people are getting treatment than ever before. By keeping the focus on the needs and rights of key populations, we can 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 and breastfeeding mothers to prevent the transmission of HIV from mother to child
  • Deliver comprehensive care to people living with HIV and their families at times and locations that are convenient to them
  • 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 quality services free from stigma, discrimination, or judgment
  • Promote efficient testing—in communities, facilities, and hotspots—so people know their status and can initiate treatment as early as possible, a key aspect of UNAIDS’ 95-95-95 goals
  • Decentralize HIV services to communities and low-tier health settings so more people in more places—especially adolescents, men, and those lost-to-follow-up—have access to the services they need
  • Integrate HIV services with other sexual and reproductive health interventions, 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
