HIV Age Positively Grants Program 2018 

For over 30 years, Gilead has worked to improve treatments for people living with HIV, helping transform HIV infection from a fatal and debilitating disease into a chronic, manageable condition. Though successful prevention and treatment options are critical interventions in the effort to end the HIV epidemic, identifying novel agents and strategies that could play a role in eradicating HIV infection in the body remains an important aspect of Gilead’s commitment to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

As part of our ongoing commitment to ending the HIV epidemic, Gilead has long supported community-led programs for PLWH and we seek to further understand the evolving needs of PLWH as they age. As a continuation of that work, today we would like to make you aware of the funding opportunity announcement through our new Gilead HIV Age Positively™ Community Impact Program.*  Please review the attached document to learn more. 

To learn more about the Gilead HIV Age Positively™ Initiative or to submit an application please visit http://gilead.com/responsibility/hiv-age-positively.

When submitting your application, please include “HIV Age Positively” in the program title and check the program tag “HIV Age Positively”. The deadline to submit an application is September 28, 2018

Logistical inquiries related to this funding opportunity announcement should be directed to grants@gilead.com.
