At the Elton John AIDS Foundation we believe that AIDS can be beaten.
Our goal is to create an AIDS-free future for everyone in the world. With enough love, support and creativity, we know this is possible.
The Foundation has 20 years of expertise in the fight against HIV. We are now one of the largest, most respected and ‘can-do’ charities in our field. We have made it our mission from the start to help those who are most stigmatised by society because they are living with, or at high risk of HIV, by providing them with the means to protect themselves, access medicine and get on with their lives. We believe everyone is entitled to dignity, respect and compassion.
AIDS is the most devastating disease the world has ever known. By the end of the 20th century, 50 years’ worth of public health gains were annihilated by AIDS. It was at this time, after losing his close friends like Freddie Mercury and teenager Ryan White to AIDS, that Sir Elton John decided to set up the Foundation, first in the United States in 1992, and subsequently in the United Kingdom in 1993.
While functioning as separate organisations, both the Elton John AIDS Foundation in London and New York pursue the common goals of empowering people infected, affected and at risk of HIV/AIDS.
