About us

The HIV Confident charter mark aims to reduce HIV stigma in member organisations.

Despite all the advances in clinical care, life for people living with HIV can be difficult because of stigma and discrimination.

HIV stigma is often based on outdated ideas and made worse by discrimination in other areas like gender, sexuality or race.

To get to zero new cases of HIV, zero preventable deaths, and 100 per cent of people living well, we must fight stigma and discrimination.

HIV Confident members make a commitment to ensure that people living with HIV can access their services and work for them without fear of discrimination.

HIV Confident members commit to:

  • Increasing employee knowledge about HIV
  • Improving employee attitudes towards people living with HIV
  • Tackling stigma and discrimination within their organisation
  • Providing people living with HIV a way to report any stigma or discrimination they experience.
