Global AIDS Policy Partnership (GAPP)

The Global AIDS Policy Partnership (GAPP) is a Washington DC based coalition of advocacy and implementing organizations committed to ending AIDS as a global public health threat by expanding and improving global HIV and AIDS programming.

The GAPP, co-chaired by Catherine Connor (Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation) and Kevin Fisher (AVAC), meets monthly in Washington DC. GAPP membership is limited to organizations committed to funding and improving global HIV and AIDS programming. A number of the member organizations of GAPP are listed below. If you are interested in learning how your organization can apply to join the GAPP, please contact Catherine Connor (cconnor@pedaids.org) or Kevin Fisher (kevin@avac.org).

The U.S. is the largest funder of HIV/AIDS programs worldwide through support for the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria (Global Fund). GAPP, through its policy and advocacy work, supports robust funding and supportive policies for both PEPFAR and the Global Fund. Information on programming and investment by these programs can be found online at the PEPFAR Dashboards and the Global Fund’s Grant Portfolio.
