We are always impressed by the vision of the Elton John AIDS Foundation (@ejaf
), a key partner in the LGBT Fund which is an effort jointly financed by EJAF and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (@PEPFAR
). Through programs like the Rapid Response Team, the fund supports communities in Africa by offering grants to help LGBT-led civil society organizations adapt to unexpected events that impact the ability of LGBT people to access HIV services. In Nigeria, for example, PEPFAR increased HIV testing of pregnant women to reduce mother-to-child transmission.
These programs are essential to the goal of reducing HIV transmission and a goal of an #aidsfreeworld
