The HIV Foundation Asia develops cutting-edge research and innovative service models. A unique aspect of our approach is that we technically design and deliver services. We apply new ideas to services that we deliver in the streets, the slums, in homes, workplaces and in hospitals to improve people’s lives. We partner with international, regional and national organizations to create shared value. Together, we generate new ideas, new partnerships and new knowledge that can contribute to achieving an AIDS free future. We partner with research institutions, governments, and for- profit and not-for-profit organisations. This section of the website provides technical briefs, case studies and reports we’ve developed in partnership with other organisations.Photos
