Call for proposals: Grant application - Positive Action for MSM & Transgender People

Closing date:

Positive Action for MSM & Transgender People aims to improve sexual health & wellbeing and advance social and economic justice for men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people in resource-limited and hostile settings. By doing so, we aim to build evidence that shows that community-level interventions which address HIV in combination with other holistic needs can significantly reduce new HIV infections, STI prevalence and AIDS-related mortality.

Our small grants programme is our flagship programme, committing a minimum of £1.25million each year to initiatives led by and focused on either MSM or transgender people. 

Our first of two calls for community-led small grants proposals in 2018 is open between Thursday 29th March and Monday 30th April.
