Coalition for Children Affected by AIDS

The Coalition for Children Affected by AIDS (The Coalition) is an independent group of thought-leaders from across the donor, UN, non-governmental, and academic communities.  Each Member is a highly influential expert in their particular field – from sexual and reproductive health, early childhood development, to HIV – with the connections and gravitas to impact global policy change.

We advocate together at the global level for the rights of children and adolescents left behind by the HIV and broader development response. This includes adolescent mothers and their children, and the children of key populations and other children, adolescents and families experiencing poverty and exclusion. We are committed to enabling them, and all children and adolescents affected by HIV and AIDS, to survive and thrive across the HIV targets and the Sustainable Development Goals.

What They Do


The Coalition for Children Affected by AIDS believes that children need to be made a higher priority in the international response to HIV and AIDS. The Coalition brings funders and technical experts together to advocate for the best policy, research, and programs for children because children are a vulnerable population that has too often been overlooked.
