NAT (National AIDS Trust) 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.
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.
One of our strategic goals is working to enhance understanding of the facts about HIV and living with HIV in the UK. We created HIVaware so the general public could have access to a high quality online resource where they can learn the facts about HIV and how to protect themselves and others, and also find out more about the reality of living with HIV in the UK today.
NAT has been established since 1987 and is the UK's HIV policy and campaigning charity. 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.
All our work is focussed on achieving our 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
