Funders & Sponsors

Minority AIDS Support Services is Proud to Partner With the Following Funders & Sponsors...

Elton John AIDS Foundation

The Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) was established in the United States in 1992 by Sir Elton John, and is headquartered in New York City. In 1993, Sir Elton also established his Foundation as a registered charity in the United Kingdom, headquartered in London. These two organizations function as separate entities with their own distinct grant-making portfolios, but both pursue the same mission:

  • To reduce the incidence of HIV/AIDS through innovative HIV prevention programs
  • To eliminate stigma and discrimination associated with HIV/AIDS
  • To direct treatment, care, and support services for people living with HIV/AIDS

The Foundation supports this mission through proceeds from special events, cause-related marketing projects, and voluntary contributions (large and small) from individuals, corporations, and foundations.

ViiV Healthcare

ViiV Healthcare is an independent pharmaceutical company dedicated to delivering advances in treatment and care for people living with HIV. The company was established in 2009 by combining the power and expertise from both GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Pfizer. Following a long-term collaboration on the joint development of several novel integrase inhibitors we were joined by Shionogi in 2012. Our current portfolio of eleven HIV treatments generated annual sales of nearly $1.9 billion in 2012 providing us with the financial stability to take a sustainable, long-term view when investing in our pipeline of new medicines. Our scientists are 100% dedicated to finding new ways to limit the impact of HIV on the 34 million people living with the virus and understanding how best to prevent and treat the disease.
