About us

We are the Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+), a network for people living with HIV, run by people living with HIV. We engage with and support national and regional networks of people living with HIV, and this ensures that our global work is grounded in their local experiences and priorities. The meaningful involvement of people living with HIV is at the heart of all that we do. 

We work with communities that are both geographic and identity-based. We are not a membership organization; we are a network of interconnected individuals and organizations that is open to all.

We build broad partnerships with individuals, organizations and institutions to increase our influence. Using the power of evidence-based advocacy, we challenge governments and global leaders to improve access to quality HIV prevention, treatment, care and support services.

Our Vision: 
A world where all people living with HIV are free from stigma and discrimination to have our rights recognized, our dignity respected and have universal access to treatment and care.

Our Mission:
To improve the quality of life for people living with HIV, in all our diversity.

How We Began:
People Living with HIV came tighter for their first conference in 1986. Since then, regular conferences have taken place, giving our community an opportunity to share information and develop ideas for joint activism. Over time, our discussions led to the development of programmes to tackle the HIV epidemic. By 1992, it was clear that we needed an organisation to take on this programme work, and GNP+ was born. Today, GNP+ has staff based in offices in Amsterdam and Cape Town, plus a few in other parts of the world, all working together with a network of partners, allies and supporters to deliver global advocacy programmes.
