India HIV/AIDS Alliance was selected as the top NGO representing the north region in the large organisation category.
The India NGO Awards are organised by the Resource Alliance and the Rockefeller Foundation, one of the world’s leading foundations and supporters of civil society. The awards recognise and support best practice in India’s NGO sector. India HIV/AIDS Alliance was the only HIV focused organisation among the 11 finalists.
They have spoken about the awards on their blog, commenting that “Alliance India is deeply grateful to be recognised by the India NGO Awards. HIV/AIDS remains a serious concern for India, and too often, the communities most affected by the epidemic—men who have sex with men; transgender people; sex workers; people who use drugs; and people living with the virus—are neglected. This award affirms the vital role that these communities play in our work and recommits us to meeting the challenges of HIV/AIDS.”
