At Aidsfonds - Soa Aids Nederland, we strive for a world where there are no longer any deaths from AIDS and where people enjoy good sexual health. A world in which everyone can love freely and without fear. We do this by working together with the people who are hit hardest by HIV, STIs, discrimination and exclusion. We strengthen their voice and support them with information, knowledge and funding. For all that is love.
The International department is responsible for funding of community-led action to increase access to health and rights, as well as for conducting global advocacy towards these aims. We focus on funding communities of populations living with or affected by HIV (including LGBTIQ+, sex workers, people who use drugs, youth, women and children) in 10 countries and 2 regions worldwide. Our 2022-2025 strategy “For All that is Love” describes our ambition towards increased co-decision making with community representatives throughout our funding. The international department consists of an advocacy team, the secretariat of the Robert Carr Fund, and two programmatic teams: Key Populations and Children, Youth & Women. The teams’ work is organized in projects with project leaders responsible for the implementation and budgetary management of their projects.

Worldwide, key populations continue to account for a disproportionate number of HIV infections and AIDS deaths. We have the tools to ensure that people living with HIV can live a healthy and long life, and new infections can be prevented. Gender- and power inequalities stand in the way of access to good prevention, treatment and care for many LGBTQI+ people, people who use drugs and sex workers. Aidsfonds is committed to supporting these communities to access their health and rights. The key populations team contribute to this aim by supporting community-led partnerships and projects and by leading on global advocacy.
The Love Alliance is a five-year strategic partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs focusing on advocacy for health and rights for LGBTQI+ people, people who use drugs and sex workers in 10 African countries. The senior project officer will primary support the Coordinator of the Love Alliance in her day to day coordination of the partnership. As such you will be part of the administrative lead team. Your main responsibility is to coordinate the annual planning and reporting cycle in close collaboration with diverse alliance partners and working groups, and make sure the plans as described in the full project proposal and annual plans are implemented.
First of all, we offer you an ambitious and diverse organization in which we work together in an accessible, open and inspiring atmosphere and deliver quality based on appealing goals and clear roles. In this way we contribute to a world where there are no longer any deaths from AIDS and where people enjoy good sexual health. You are welcome as you are, who you love or what you believe. We are curious about your talents and your social drive to work with us on our mission. You look at issues from different perspectives and you connect with the communities with whom we work, because you can draw on your own experience, have become acquainted with members of these communities or are interested in: people living with HIV, women, youth and children, LGBTIQ+, people with a migration background, (former) sex workers, (former) drug users.
