The Washington office was established in 2003. Alliance USA is one of four offices of the International Secretariat.
Collectively, the US government and US-based foundations have an enormous impact on HIV/AIDS programmes in developing countries. In addition to providing a large proportion of total funding for AIDS globally, these stakeholders exert tremendous influence on programming and policy concerning HIV and related issues.
WHAT WE DO
Forging partnerships, improving policies
Alliance USA forges partnerships with US-based organisations working on HIV/AIDS, SRH and TB internationally; shares lessons learned and ‘good practice’ approaches with US stakeholders; and participates in US-based advocacy to increase the impact of HIV/AIDS programmes in developing countries.
Alliance USA works to ensure that US stakeholders understand, support and promote an evidence-based response to the HIV pandemic, especially as it relates to working with community based organisations and communities that are most marginalised and at-risk.
A collective response
Alliance USA will continue to ensure strong and productive partnerships with USG, US Foundations and US INGOs and will bring lessons learned and evidence of what works to discussions with US stakeholders. It will seek to strengthen the collective US response to AIDS with particular attention to:
- Evidence-based approaches in working with most-at-risk populations and other vulnerable groups;
- Building capacity to support success and sustainability of NGOs and CBOs;
- Supporting community systems strengthening as a necessary complement to facility based health systems strengthening.
