The Elton John AIDS Foundation was established in 1992 and is one of the leading independent AIDS organisations in the world. Our mission is simple: to be a powerful force in ending the AIDS epidemic.

We believe AIDS can be beaten and we’re committed to making it happen. That means everyone at risk of HIV – no matter who they are or where they are – must get compassionate support and care that allows them to stay healthy and safe, and live with dignity.

No more discrimination. No more HIV infections. No more AIDS deaths.

Fearless Commitment

  • We focus on communities who are most at risk of HIV – including LGBTQ+ people, young people, and people who use drugs – to make sure no one is left behind. We know how to reach communities who have been marginalised.
  • We aren’t afraid to fail, to take risks and make a stand.
  • We work in some of the most challenging countries and contexts, and we work at all levels to influence change – with local partners for local solutions and, amplified by Elton’s voice, at national and international levels.

If we can find the love as a global community to agree that every life has equal value, if we can summon the compassion to provide treatment and prevention for everyone living with HIV – and I mean everyone, no matter who they are, where they live, or how rich or poor they may be – we can end AIDS forever. – Elton John
