What we do

Our work supports change, so people have the knowledge to make informed choices and take control of their sexual health. By increasing knowledge, confidence, skills and evidence-based practices, our work drives improvements in individual health literacy, self-efficacy and uptake of services, and quality of community and local health worker responses.

We work with a range of partners and digital organisations, and most importantly with our users, to shape the content and products we produce. We focus on locations and communities where HIV continues to have a profound effect on health and development.
