Who we are: NAT is the UK’s leading charity dedicated to transforming society’s response to HIV. We provide fresh thinking, expertise and practical resources. We champion the rights of people living with HIV and campaign for change. Shaping attitudes. Challenging injustice. Changing lives
Our vision: Our vision is a world in which people living with HIV are treated as equal citizens with respect, dignity and justice, are diagnosed early and receive the highest standards of care, and in which everyone knows how, and is able, to protect themselves and others from HIV infection.
Our strategic goals: All our work is focused on achieving five strategic goals: • Effective HIV prevention in order to halt the spread of HIV • Early diagnosis of HIV through ethical, accessible and appropriate testing • Equitable access to treatment, care and support for people living with HIV • Enhanced understanding of the facts about HIV and living with HIV in the UK • Eradication of HIV-related stigma and discrimination.
How we work: We believe we make the most lasting and positive impact on the greatest number of lives by changing attitudes, behaviour, decisions and policies - and we seek to influence those whose actions have the biggest impact on the lives of people affected by HIV in the UK. We listen to people living with, and affected by, HIV and those who support them and we put the needs and rights of HIV positive people at the heart of everything we do. We pride ourselves on being independent and evidence-based. We are committed to partnership working and we work in a collaborative and productive manner with a range of partner organisations to share experience and knowledge and make the greatest collective difference.
