The Coalition for Children Affected by AIDS (the Coalition) recognizes that children and their parents and carers have to lead the way to change. They are the experts of their own experiences with HIV and AIDS and more must be done to involve them in decisions around funding, programming and policies. There are many dynamic networks operating in every region of the world that contain remarkable champions who can speak from first hand experience about HIV and AIDS and their impact on children and families. The Coalition seeks to strengthen these voices by working with a select group of ambassadors representing networks working with children, families and caregivers affected by HIV and AIDS to:

  • Participate in global level fora, and
  • Mobilise their own networks to prepare for and follow up on opportunities resulting from global level engagement.

More information on our Ambassadors is available here. You can also hear from them directly.

The Coalition is currently seeking a young mother Ambassador. If you are: a young mother (18 Р21) living with or affected by HIV and are an advocate in your own community, please consider applying or this role. More information is available here.
