AIDS is the most devastating disease the modern world has ever known. By the end of the 20th Century, 50 years worth of  public health gains were annihilated by AIDS. This is an unnecessary tragedy.

The Elton John AIDS Foundation promotes ways to beaten the AIDS and to create an AIDS free future for everybody in this world.

The Pioneer Grant aims to support key populations at higher risk – such as men who have sex with men (MSM), sex workers and injecting drug users – within individual countries. The application process for Pioneer Grants is currently open until 31st August 2013.
