WAC Mission

Our vision is of a world campaign built on the experience and passion of those most affected, together with a broad range of partners in the North and South.

This vision is of a global movement bringing renewed impetus and resolve to the fight against the epidemic. We believe that the "business as usual" approach to campaigning on AIDS should be a thing of the past. We now see many more partners joining the AIDS response, a redoubling of existing efforts and our policymakers beginning to act on their commitments on AIDS.

The goal of the World AIDS Campaign (WAC) is to energize and support an effective and sustained response to the HIV pandemic. By helping partners work together at national and international levels, we will broaden the partnership among those shaping the response to AIDS. Crucial to our success will be increased public awareness of past policy commitments and promises on AIDS, including the Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS. On these promises we will hold our governments accountable.

The WAC has the following objectives:

  • To ensure governments and policymakers keep their promises to meet the targets they have agreed to in the fight against HIV and AIDS
  • To foster an alliance of AIDS campaigns, linking local efforts for global impact
  • To secure the resources necessary for the fight against HIV and AIDS
  • To broaden and strengthen the role of civil society in the response to AIDS
