WHAT IS THE END AIDS COALITION (EAC)?

The End AIDS Coalition is a cross-sector, non-partisan coalition that is fostering unprecedented collaboration, transparency and accountability. Building on the work of partners, the EAC will focus the global AIDS response around ending the epidemic by 2030; help aggregate and amplify the work of partners, identify barriers, encourage efficiencies and ultimately create a movement that inspires everyone everywhere to be part of the solutions.

 

WHY FORM THE EAC NOW?

We are at a “tipping point.” If we don’t get control of the epidemic in the next three to five years, it may never be possible. The costs in both funding and human lives would be catastrophic.

 

WHAT IS CAUSING THE AIDS “TIPPING POINT?”

The emerging generation of at-risk youth is much larger than those before it. Even if current rates of infection among at-risk young people remains constant, the sheer number of new infections could double – driving the epidemic beyond our control.

 

WHAT IS A “MICRO-EPIDEMIC”?

There is a global pandemic, which consists of multiple local, “micro-epidemics” with different characteristics and drivers. Each micro-epidemic requires its own mix of interventions and innovations, in the right place at the right time.

 

WHAT’S NEXT FOR THE EAC?

In 2018 the EAC will launch a global campaign to align and energize the global narrative with targeted advocacy. We hope to spark a global movement and encourage everyone everywhere to recognize the challenges and be part of the solutions.

 

HOW DO I BECOME PART OF THE EAC?

Any AIDS organization, expert, scientist, clinician, policy-maker, faith leader, businesses, activist or humanitarian can join the EAC.
