We particularly encourage people living with HIV to apply.

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.
