Putting people at the heart of the HIV response
Our person-centred approach means we think holistically about an individual’s full range of needs, desires, capacities and human rights.
The Alliance uses a person-centred approach to increase access to quality HIV and health services and to realise the human rights of people living with HIV and others affected by HIV.
This means that we look at health from an individual perspective. We consider health as much more than the absence of illness and think holistically about an individual’s full range of needs, desires, capacities and human rights.
Our person-centred approach is based on the values of equality, equity, power and integration, which underpin our interventions at all levels: individual, peers, family and community, services, Alliance practitioners, and the legal and policy environment.
