Grants to USA and Puerto Rico nonprofit organizations for initiatives to educate about and increase awareness of HIV among Black women. Funding is intended to improve health outcomes for Black women. Priority areas of interest include promoting self-advocacy for women living with HIV, improving networks, and engaging women in HIV prevention.

ViiV Healthcare focuses its funding and collaborations on community organizations that are prioritizing work in three key focus areas:

  • Networks: Strengthen supportive networks for people living with and impacted by HIV and those who serve them
  • Linkage and Engagement: Support navigation and programs that help link, re-link and engage people in HIV prevention, treatment, and care
  • Advocacy: Amplify the efforts of people living with and impacted by HIV to advocate for themselves. Strengthen leadership, insights, and culture activities that reduce stigma and fuel community responses.

Risk to Reasons funding is available for projects that:

  • Engage Black women to increase awareness and access to prevention. This includes:
    • New community messengers and peer to peer storytelling campaigns around HIV Prevention and re-engagement in care
    • Outreach, awareness and support campaigns focused on women with multiple reasons for HIV prevention
    • Navigation and linkage to care programs that build community and clinical collaborations for HIV prevention for Black women
  • Train Organizations and Providers to serve Black women, with a focus on service providers at the critical intersections of HIV and social determinants of health. This includes:
    • Training for organizational staff and leadership to better understand and meet Black women’s prevention needs, with a particular focus on providers at the intersection of HIV, housing, harm reduction, mental health, STI/STD services, incarceration, and women’s wellness
    • Training for medical providers to understand and meet Black women’s prevention needs, with an emphasis on providers in reproductive health, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants
  • Change the Narrative around HIV and Women building on the framework of Risk to Reasons including:
    • Support for new storytellers and messengers around HIV prevention through micro grants and other strategies
    • Arts based outreach and engagement events around HIV prevention and care
    • Media advocacy and training work, including guides for journalists, creative writers and producers
    • Creative advocacy to connect HIV and reproductive justice movements
    • Local and national collaborations and coalitions working to advance access to HIV prevention for Black Women

All projects should reflect and respond to the unique and varied experiences of Black women of cis and trans experience, and build from the recommendations in the Risk to Reasons Guide. Applicants are encouraged to work in partnership, identify opportunities to expand their reach and networks and forge collaborations that are critical to engaging more women.

ViiV Healthcare is particularly interested in efforts that operate at the intersection of HIV and other social determinants of health including but not limited to poverty, substance use, sex work, homelessness, unemployment, incarceration, reproductive healthcare and intimate partner violence.
