About Us

The Coalition for Children Affected by AIDS (the Coalition) is a unique group of global donors, UN agencies, NGOs and independent experts working together to help children survive and thrive. Founded in 2004, The Coalition for Children Affected by AIDS is a fully independent international advocacy and learning group of senior thought-leaders from health, HIV, early childhood development, child protection and other sectors. Together, we advocate at the global level for the rights of children (0-17) left behind by the HIV and broader development response. This includes adolescent mothers and their children, the children of key populations and other children and caregivers facing social and structural exclusion. We are committed to enabling them and their caregivers to survive and thrive across the HIV targets and the SDGs.


"We believe in a world without AIDS, in which all children with and at risk of HIV enjoy full rights and equitable access to health, social and economic support."
