The SCALE Initiative - About Us

The SCALE Initiative: Removing Barriers to HIV Services was launched by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and The United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) on World AIDS Day 2022. SCALE aims to drive progress on the 10-10-10 targets by working with people living with HIV and other key populations to strengthen and scale their work countering punitive and discriminatory laws and HIV-related criminalization.

Activities are implemented in close collaboration with key populations, civil society, governments and other multilateral organizations and partners. UNDP is also working hand-in-hand with PEPFAR, UNAIDS, the Global Fund, the Global Partnership to Eliminate all Forms of HIV-related Stigma and Discrimination and other multilateral and development partners to align efforts and ensure that key population leadership is front and center.
