ViiV Healthcare commits nearly £4M in Positive Action for Children Fund grants for programmes focused on alleviating burden of HIV on women and children
Date:11/8/2012

LONDON, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ViiV Healthcare announced today that it has awarded nearly £4 million to 99 projects in 26 countries through its Positive Action for Children Fund (PACF), aimed at improving the health and well-being of women, children and families affected by HIV. Collectively, PACF has awarded approximately £13.6M from 2010-2012 in support of 122 grantees.

Today's announcement extends funding for 2011 small grant awardees and technical assistance providers, to help support projects that continue to have an impact among the local communities they serve. The Positive Action for Children Fund renewed support for 84 community projects that are making a tangible difference in 21 countries where mothers and children are most affected by HIV.

Examples include:

  • As part of the Youth Impact project in Malawi, eight mobile HIV testing sessions have been initiated and 321 young men and women have been referred to prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) educational sessions, increasing awareness among this important population.
  • Through the Happy Children initiative in Zambia, programme directors state that 100 per cent of babies born within services covered by the project over the past year are currently receiving antiretroviral (ARV) prophylaxis within 72 hours of birth and these efforts have prioritised prevention in additional at-risk groups.
  • The Women Friendly Initiative (WFI) in Nigeria engaged health providers in training sessions focused on family planning, reproductive counselling and PMTCT among other clerical and data management support, contributing to the overall health and well-being of prenatal and antenatal care of women in the community.
  • By the end of June 2012, 2,300 individuals from the most at-risk populations were reached with HIV prevention messages as part of the YAWIA Uganda initiative.
  • Physicians for Social Justice in Nigeria has held 10 comm
