The Consortium is a network of around 80 not-for-profit, faith-based and academic agencies. Based in the UK, with strong links to governments, international and multilateral agencies, the Consortium has been working at the heart of the response to HIV and AIDS for 25 years.
Our vision is to promote an effective global response to HIV and AIDS.
Our mission is to encourage, initiate and support collective action by UK civil society. To act urgently to stop AIDS.
How we work
The Consortium achieves its impact through its membership, which works directly with more than 130 million people worldwide, and by engaging decision-makers across the governmental, non-governmental and private sectors, by developing policy, identifying best practice, lobbying and conducting public campaigns.
We work with urgency to maintain UK leadership in the response to HIV and AIDS. With 9 million people still living without access to treatment, and funding for the vital work of the Global Fund on AIDS, TB & Malaria in doubt, our message has never been more urgent or necessary.
“It is safe to say that VSO has been able to have a much greater profile on HIV internationally through the Consortium than it would have been able to do on its own. Our work through the Consortium, particularly through the Care and Support Working Group and representation on its Board, has meant that VSO is now well known by donor governments and key multilaterals for our work on care and support.”
