India HIV/AIDS Alliance (Alliance India) is a diverse partnership that brings together committed organisations and communities to support sustained responses to HIV in India. Complementing the Indian national programme, we work through capacity building, knowledge sharing, technical support and advocacy. Through our network of partners, we support the delivery of effective, innovative, community-based HIV programmes to key populations affected by the epidemic.

Alliance India works through NGO and CBO partners to support efforts that have a sustainable impact on HIV. We place communities at the center and work to ensure that vulnerable and marginalised people are meaningfully involved in all aspects of our response, including sex workers, men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, transgender individuals, and people living with HIV. Our programming and policy efforts are driven by evidence of what works; quality and accountability are core priorities in our interventions, technical support and grant management.

The Advocacy & Programme Officer will work as part of our Wajood programme funded by Amplify Change. Wajood is a rights-based programme that strengthens the capacity of community-based organisations to provide effective, inclusive and sustainable HIV prevention programming for transgenders and hijras. The programme focuses on enhancing access to sexual health, mitigating violence and providing linkages to social welfare and entitlement schemes for the transgenders and hijra community.
