The SCALE Initiative:

Removing Barriers to HIV Services

The lives and livelihoods of people living with HIV and other key populations are under threat.

The SCALE Initiative is committed to help strengthen and scale the work of these communities to say enough is enough - to counter the discriminatory laws, policies and HIV-related criminalization that deny us our fundamental rights and dignity and unlock progress on the global 10-10-10 HIV targets. 

This community hub provides space to share knowledge, resources and good practices on the pathway to law reform, including events and findings related to SCALE Initiative activities. While we work on adding to this space with additional resources, please follow for updates on upcoming calls for submissions, events, news stories, community forums and grant announcements.

The SCALE Initiative is a two-year partnership between UNDP and PEPFAR, in collaboration with UNAIDS and the Global Fund.
