The International HIV/AIDS Alliance is a global partnership of nationally-based organisations working to support community action on AIDS in developing countries. Alliance’s vision is of a world in which people do not die of AIDS. India HIV/AIDS Alliance (or, Alliance India), established in 1999, comprises a Secretariat in New Delhi, five lead partner organisations (the Linking Organisations within the global Alliance) and their networks of over 100 NGOs and CBOs across Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and Delhi states, and a state partner in Manipur. Alliance India’s project office in Hyderabad was formally launched in April 2008 as the fifth Linking Organisation in India. The Alliance in India has supported over 120 community-based projects through its NGO and CBO partners to prevent HIV infection; improve access to HIV treatment, care and support; and lessen the impact of HIV. The last including reducing stigma and discrimination, particularly among the most vulnerable and marginalised communities key to the epidemic – sex workers, MSM, IDUs and adults and children living with and/or affected by HIV. In 2007, funding from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) was awarded to Alliance India, whereby the partnership in India has been broadened to include two new project-based lead partner relationships with two more organisations and their networks of implementing NGO partners.
