What we do

We work to change lives by sharing information about HIV and AIDS.

Our mission, vision and principles

Our mission

aidsmap provides independent, accurate and accessible information about HIV.

Our vision

A world where HIV is no longer a threat to health or happiness.

Our principles

  • Independent, accurate and accessible information is vital in the fight against HIV and AIDS.
  • Knowledge empowers and equips people to manage their health.
  • Knowledge enables advocates, campaigners and communities to take action on health.
  • The information we provide should help our audiences effect change in their own lives, their work or their communities.
  • Reducing HIV stigma removes barriers to testing and treatment.
  • Social inequalities must be addressed to deliver health equality.
  • We strive to serve individuals, communities and providers across the world, recognising that needs and culture differ.

Maintaining high standards

We are committed to ensuring the information we produce is:

  • Accurate
  • Accessible
  • Clearly communicated
  • Evidence-based
  • Independent
  • Up to date
  • Relevant
  • Rooted in the experiences of those most affected by HIV.

User feedback and review panels help aidsmap evaluate its publications. Our resources are better as a result of this, which means people can continue to use aidsmap.com as a trusted source of useful information about HIV and AIDS.

We keep a record of feedback we receive and incorporate any suggestions into the ongoing development of our resources. The collection of these ideas and suggestions helps us focus on specific things, but also gives us a good sense of the trends or themes emerging. When requests build up around a similar theme or topic it helps aidsmap identify gaps in information.

We work with medical review panels who review our resources to ensure our standards are being met.

People with HIV are able to contribute their expertise and share their experiences by being part of our peer review panel. Members of this panel provide us with comments on our patient information booklets and other resources for people with HIV.

Your feedback and input really does make a difference. If you would like to comment on any of aidsmap's resources please contact us.
