Gilead Asia Rainbow Grant

We're supporting projects that tackle HIV/AIDS in Asia

Thank you for your interest in the Gilead Asia Rainbow Grant. We are eager to support projects that engage young adults and communities affected by HIV/AIDS. Gilead believes the best programs break down barriers faced by people living with HIV (PLWH) and those groups marginalized by society. We also want to sustain projects that focus on leveraging the power of partnerships to drive progress toward sustainable programs that help to build strong communities.

There are three types of HIV/AIDS-related communities we are particularly eager to support:

Focus 1 - Digital Community grants

Focus 1: Digital Communities

Gilead's Digital Communities grants will focus on HIV/AIDS campaigns and projects using social media, digital apps or digital content given that digital communication is highly evolved across Asia.

Grant proposals under digital communities can include support and education campaigns and communication projects that aim to promote and empower both PLWH and those communities disparately impacted, including those who inject drugs, men who have sex with men (MSM), transgender, and sex workers.

Focus 2 - Friendly Community grants

Focus 2: Friendly Communities

Gilead's Friendly Communities grants are intended for campaigns focused on awareness; education and tackling stigma given that discrimination, bullying and social alienation remains a common feature of daily life for many PLWH.

Focus 3 - Youth Community grants

Focus 3: Youth Communities

Gilead's Youth Communities grants are focused on projects directly targeting teenagers as well as their friends and families, schools and teachers due to the increasing number of cases in Asia among this age group.

Potential proposals could focus on voluntary counselling and testing, community engagement campaigns, and social and behavioural change campaigns.
