Map of visits to Avert.org

Avert.org is the only global HIV and AIDS resource of its kind – providing accessible sexual health information for individuals and in-depth resources for professionals working in the HIV response.

Through our website we reached over 9.million people in 2018-19 with information on HIV and sexual health, with over 1.32 million visitors from across Sub-Saharan Africa.

Reaching those who need us most

Our public pages provide accessible information on what HIV is, how it is transmitted and prevented, how to get tested, and how to live healthily with HIV. The site also provides sex-positive information about sex, sexuality and STIs and sexual health for adolescents (and adults) who may not be getting useful or accurate information from family, teachers or peers.

My college is hosting a free HIV test and I’m really nervous for it, but this article has made me feel a little bit better.

Reading through testimonials of people living with HIV and AIDS has really helped me to understand a lot on what they go through.

Supporting professionals in the HIV response

Avert.org also provides up-to-date, referenced information to support professionals working in and around the HIV response in civil society, academia, education, health and other areas.

Whether it’s a current understanding of the epidemic in South Africa you need, or programming information on prevention of mother-to-child transmission, our professional resources are there to be used and shared.

This website continues to be a saving grace for those of us working in HIV and SRH in the African region.

This was a very good and educative article. I found good material for my HIV youths and teens support group.
