Mission: GAA's mission is to galvanize the political will and financial resources needed to slow, and ultimately stop, the global AIDS crisis and address its impacts on poor countries hardest hit by the epidemic.
Founded in 2001, we have carved out a leadership role in shaping AIDS policy discussions and mobilizing coalition-based campaigns to break through bureaucratic inaction and speed the pace of the global response to HIV/AIDS.
GAA has achieved considerable success in increasing funding and influencing AIDS policy?earning a well-deserved reputation for holding decision-makers accountable and encouraging concerned citizens to demand political action. We have also established strong working relationships with major stakeholders, including the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria, UNAIDS, UNICEF, and the World Health Organization, as well as with key decision-makers in the U.S. Congress and United Nations.
Programs: GAA combines media outreach and public education with targeted coalition-building and grassroots mobilization in order to raise awareness and inspire activism in support of ongoing advocacy efforts to persuade U.S. policymakers and other stakeholders to implement a comprehensive response to the global AIDS crisis. Specifically, we work to accelerate progress toward (1) a comprehensive, evidence-based HIV prevention strategy; (2) universal treatment access, with a focus on treatment for women and expanded availability of pediatric antiretrovirals; (3) a comprehensive response to the crisis of orphans and vulnerable children; and (4) universal basic education and the abolition of school fees.
