Elton John AIDS Foundation

Funding priority

They fund frontline programmes that help to alleviate the pain – whether physical, emotional or financial – of those living with, affected by or at risk of HIV/AIDS, and to continue the fight against this worldwide pandemic so that no one is left behind.

The Foundation is committed to:

• No more discrimination

• No more new HIV infections

• No more AIDS deaths

In line with the UNAIDS’s agenda, their grant making strategy is built around two key focus areas: vulnerable populations and large scale and grass roots initiatives.
