Knowledgeable people are making informed choices

Avert's 2017-21 strategy sets out four priority responses for us. Response 1 is to promote knowledge and education on HIV. The result of this work is knowledgeable people making informed choices on their sexual health.

Today, around 30,000 people will access our website from every corner of the world and several thousand will engage with our content on social media.

Every word we write, graphic we create or video we produce has the potential to change the lives of those at risk of or affected by HIV.

We put information about how to prevent HIV infection into the hands of young people across the world, offer reassurance to people newly diagnosed with HIV when and where they need it, and dispel dangerous myths about HIV and AIDS.

I just did my HIV test, result came back negative I was so worried before the result but now I feel better. I would like to say thank you for information you provide to us and it helps lot, great job again, thanks.
- Tony also supports the global HIV response by providing a well-researched resource on the global epidemic, alongside an up-to-date news service to inform people working in HIV programming, policy or research.

With over 135,000 returning visitors each month, we know that we offer reliable and trustworthy information on HIV and AIDS that people return to again and again.

Our Facebook presence is successfully reaching out to individuals worried about HIV, meeting young people where they already go and talk online. We are there ready with the right accessible information they need to make informed choices about their sexual health.
