Local Charitable Giving Programme


The Local Charitable Giving Programme financially supports a local project each year in the city that is hosting the International AIDS Conference or the IAS Conference on HIV Science. Conference delegates have the option of contributing to the programme when they register.

They can choose an amount to donate by ticking a box on the registration form (USD 5, USD 15, USD 25 or USD 50). The funds collected are transferred to the organization or project after the conference.

For each conference, a request for proposals is published on the conference website, welcoming bids from local organizations or projects working on the frontlines of the HIV epidemic. Local partner(s) are also invited to suggest organizations that could be interested in bidding.

At IAS 2019, the Local Charitable Giving Programme raised USD 2,190 thanks to delegates’ generous contributions. The IAS matched this amount dollar for dollar, which meant that the programme donated a total of USD 4,380 to Red Mexicana de Personas que Viven con VIH/SIDA, A. C.
