Aidsfonds - STI AIDS Netherlands works as one organization on a world without AIDS and on reduction of STIs and HIV in the Netherlands. Over 140 highly motivated people work at our office in Amsterdam.
We are at a historic turning point in the fight against AIDS. We have all the knowledge to defeat the AIDS epidemic for good. In the Netherlands and in the rest of the world. But it is not yet a completed race. If we do not put the fight against AIDS at the highest speed now, the epidemic will continue. That may not happen. Together with 140,000 donors and partners, such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Postcode Loterij, Aidsfonds does everything to prevent that. As one of the largest private funds, we have been playing a pioneering role in the fight against AIDS for years. To put an end to AIDS, we work with local communities, do research and ensure that AIDS remains high on the global agenda.
The international department consists of two teams – the Children, Youth and Women team and Key Populations team – which are supported by global advocates, a strategic policy advisor, a gender advisor, a PM&EL advisor, a business developer and an institutional fundraiser. Collectively we work on different projects in flexible teams to successfully reach our organisational objectives.

You will mainly work on the following two projects:
Affordable access to ARVs (HIV medication) to ensure treatment for all is one of Aidsfonds goals. For this purpose, Aidsfonds is supporting a wide range of partners that advocate to reduce the intellectual property barriers for ARVs. The intellectual property project portfolio is in its last year of financial support. The project officer will ensure the proper close-out of the projects, facilitate linking and learning between partners and facilitate the strategic positioning of Aidsfonds going forward.
Young Wild Free is a project focussed on prevention, treatment, care and support services for young key populations (sex workers, LGBTI people and people who use drugs). Young key populations experience additional barriers, for example laws and regulations preventing service providers from providing services to young people. This project will contribute to the body of knowledge on how best to reach and engage young key population members and to design culturally and age-appropriate services. In the final year of this project, you will be responsible for the documentation and dissemination of the project learnings amongst others via a webpage collaborating with multiple partners.
