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.
- 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
