Frontline AIDS Senior Advisor: Funding and Partnerships Jobs in Kenya

Who We Are

We’ve been on the frontline of the world’s response to HIV and AIDS for over 25 years, working with marginalised people who are denied HIV prevention and treatment simply because of who they are and where they live.

Set up in 1993 to work with community groups in the countries most affected by the global AIDS epidemic, we’ve continually adapted our approach, looking for innovative ways to break down the barriers that marginalise people living with, or at risk of acquiring, HIV. All with one goal in mind – a future free from AIDS for everyone, everywhere.

Everything we do is rooted in our two key beliefs:

  • That the lives of all human beings are of equal value.

  • That everyone has the right to access the HIV information and services they need for a healthy life.

  • Today, we work with communities in more than 40 countries, taking local, national and global action on HIV, health and human rights.

    As a global partnership that is open to everyone, we can only do what we do – and achieve what we want to achieve – by working with partners from grassroots community groups to national governments. Our partners drive change where it matters, shaking up the status quo and making a noise on issues the world often chooses to ignore.
