Stop AIDS Alliance (SAA) is a partnership between STOP AIDS NOW!, based in the Netherlands and the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, based in the United Kingdom, with policy and advocacy offices based in Brussels, Geneva and Washington D.C.
Through engaging with EU and U.S policy makers, EU Institutions, United Nations agencies and other relevant stakeholders, we aim to ensure that the HIV response remains a high priority on the global policy agenda to achieve universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support. Our presence in the three main global policy centres (as well as in the Netherlands and the UK) aims to contribute to harmonized HIV policy messages, building linkages between advocacy groups active in the different locations and voicing the concerns and needs of the International HIV/AIDS Alliance’s and STOP AIDS NOW! partners working in the field.
SAA’s offices in Brussels, Geneva and Washington D.C. focus on common and location-specific policy and advocacy work, based on the following objectives:
- Strong and integrated human rights based approach to HIV, with a strong focus on the prevention of needs of key populations
- Promotion/adoption of social protection policies that are HIV sensitive and contribute to the AIDS response in terms of prevention, treatment, care and support and mitigation
- Sustained global funding for HIV and increased support for HCSS in donor policies and funding
- Strong policy and funding commitments to HIV and HIV-SRH integration and rights post-2015
