Love Alliance: Coming Together for Health & Human Rights
The Love Alliance is based on the premise that to end AIDS, the groups most affected by the epidemic need to be at the centre of the response. We build on existing evidence on the effectiveness of rights-based responses that focus on and meaningfully engage LGBTQI people, sex workers, people who use drugs, with specific attention for people living with HIV, women and young people within these communities. On May 11th, the start of the Love Alliance launch begins – and you’re invited to participate!
As Love Alliance advances its agenda of love for all, it seeks to highlight the challenges that the key populations it supports are faced with, and provide ways for these affected communities to reach out and get the support they need. In addition, the organisation is inviting all champions of human rights and advocates of harm reduction to join us as we highlight the issues faced by our growing global community.
To help you join us on our journey, we’re providing a social media toolkit which will enable you to help us amplify and broadcast our aims and messaging. To download the toolkit, simply click here and then feel free to share the good news across social media and elsewhere so that we can raise awareness and change the world for the better, together.
Feel free to use the hashtags #LoveAlliance and #LoveLivesHere as we come together for health and human rights! And here are the #’s for each key population:

About The Love Alliance:
The Love Alliance is in strategic partnership with and funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands.
Partners consist of:
AIDSFONDS is a funder with a bold agenda. We are innovators, developing solutions for some of the most stubborn challenges facing the HIV and AIDS response. We are collaborators, mobilising our own resources and those of other funders to effectively fund community-led responses. And, we serve as a microphone, amplifying the voices of those who must be heard, but are too often muted.
AFE’s mission is to encourage and support sexual health, sexuality, gender and bodily rights movements in the Middle East and North Africa region through capacity building, knowledge production, protection and advocacy.
GALZ’s mandate is to protect, promote and represent the rights of LGBTI people in Zimbabwe.
GNP+ seeks to improve the quality of life for people living with HIV, in all our diversity.
ISDAO is an activist-led fund dedicated to strengthening and supporting a West African movement for gender diversity and sexual rights.
SANPUD defends the rights of people who use drugs, and seeks to dismantle myths, hypocrisy and bad science that inform society’s understanding of drugs, their use, and the people who use them.
SISONKE is a movement of sex workers, by sex workers. Its primary focus is on mobilising sex workers to speak out on issues of importance to them.
UHAI EASHRI is Africa’s first indigenous activist fund for and by sexual and gender minorities and sex workers. Established in 2009, we have grown to fund civil society organising in Eastern Africa region and we also fund, partner with, and grow mission aligned Pan-African human rights organising across the continent.
