PITCH supports local organisations that work with marginalised communities and adolescent girls and young women to advocate, generate evidence and improve policy in the HIV response.
PITCH stands for the Partnership to Inspire, Transform and Connect the HIV response. The programme enables men who have sex with men, sex workers, transgender people, people who use drugs and adolescent girls and young women to realise their human rights and get equal access to HIV and sexual and reproductive health services.
PITCH does this across nine countries. Together with around 90 civil society organisations, we advocate for changes to laws and policies that impact the enjoyment of equal rights and access to HIV-services of marginalised communities.
In each country, PITCH brings together organisations representing different populations and issues, building coalitions, setting joint agendas, sharing learning, and achieving stronger voices speaking up on what matters.
Drawing on evidence generated by country partners, PITCH fights for equal rights through inter-governmental mechanisms and other global policy spaces, on human rights, sustainable financing and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). PITCH also works to influence the global agenda for harm reduction and drug policy reform.
Regional partners bring additional capacity to advocate for change in key areas and with regional or non-traditional stakeholders. In Southern Africa, PITCH partners advocate to expand HIV combination prevention. In Eastern Europe and Central Asia, regional partners are working with local municipal governments and with regional inter-governmental mechanisms, to raise the voices of marginalised populations.
PITCH is a strategic partnership between Aidsfonds, Frontline AIDS and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs as part of their “Dialogue and Dissent” programme. It runs between 2016 and 2020.
