WHO WE ARE
Since 1992, the Elton John AIDS Foundation has raised more than £290 million to combat stigma, prevent infections, provide treatment and services, and motivate governments to end AIDS. As a leading worldwide organisation supporting those affected by HIV, we work alongside local, national and international partners, government officials, and advocates to promote a global response that leaves no one behind. We are supporting programs in 23 countries to advance our fundamental belief that access to information, testing and treatment can improve the lives of those living with, affected by or at risk of HIV/AIDS.
WHAT WE ARE HERE TO DO
We believe everyone is entitled to dignity, respect and compassion.
We have made it our mission from the start to support those who are stigmatised by society just because they are living with or at high risk of HIV. Our funding provides them with the means to prevent infection, to access medicine and carry on with their lives. Only by making sure that no one is left behind can we get closer to achieving an AIDS free future.
No more discrimination. No more HIV infections. No more AIDS deaths.
HOW WE WILL GET THERE
We seek to accelerate the progress of London, Nairobi, Kiev, Atlanta, Delhi and Maputo in ending their AIDS epidemic. To get there, we want 300,000 people to test for HIV and know their status. And we pledge to support all those who have had a positive test to access life-saving treatment.
Support us by donating through JustGiving.
Through UK Aid Match, the UK government will double public donations up to £2 million to be spent across projects in Maputo and Nairobi.

£20 will pay for a self-testing kit so those stigmatised can receive the help they need
