Our funders

NAM works hard to make sure it receives its funding from a wide range of sources so it does not rely too heavily on any one funder. This includes from individuals, trusts & foundations, companies, international agencies and government. This means we can be confident that our future will not be jeopardised by a funder unexpectedly withdrawing its support. It also affords us a great deal of scope to respond to needs rapidly as they arise or to undertake projects that could otherwise be restricted. But most importantly, it allows us to remain wholly independent and means that you can be confident that the information we produce will always be impartial, accurate and reliable.

For the same reason, we don’t accept any paid advertising on aidsmap.com or in any of NAM’s printed information materials. NAM receives no sponsorship for editorial content we provide about commercially available medical, scientific or other goods or services.

We are fortunate to receive some funds from the pharmaceutical industry, which has been generous in supporting community-based HIV treatment information work. Their support is long-standing and has provided security in a rapidly changing funding environment. However, we have strict funding guidelines in place to ensure the independence and impartiality of all our information. There is no question of their being able to interfere with our editorial stance or influence us in any other way that undermines our independence. The pharmaceutical companies understand and honour our position on this.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our funders, past and present, for their support. It is your commitment and generosity that underpins everything we achieve for people affected by HIV.
