Launched in 2011, the Bridging the Gaps Alliance (BtG) is a resilient and innovative partnership focusing on the health and human rights of key populations: sex workers, people who use drugs and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. Bridging the Gaps works towards achieving universal access to HIV/STI prevention, treatment, care and support for sex workers, people who use drugs and LGBT people, including those living with HIV, contributing to the end of AIDS among key populations. The Bridging the Gaps Alliance, led by Aidsfonds, brings together four Dutch organizations (Aidsfonds, COC, AFEW and Mainline), five global networks (GNP+, INPUD, ITPC, MPact and NSWP), and more than 80 partner organizations in 15 countries, in partnership with and funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA).
In 2020, the final year of the Bridging the Gaps programme, the alliance will be focusing on consolidating and documenting results, supporting partners and ensuring sustainability of achievements.

The team is responsible for collaboration within the Alliance – through the Board, the Programme Team, and the Financial Control Group – as well as for fostering coordination and strategic collaboration with MoFA, including embassies and permanent missions and with other partnerships and relevant stakeholders.
