ITPC is the world's leading community-based movement of people living with HIV (PLHIV) and their supporters united in promoting access to treatment. ITPC members include community organizations, local NGOs, researchers, and activists with strong expertise in HIV treatment, HIV co-infections, health systems and related issues. For nearly a decade, ITPC has advocated for treatment access and promoted treatment literacy, ensuring that PLHIV actively shape their own futures and lead productive lives.
ITPC through its regional networks is primarily centered in the global south where millions lack access to affordable treatment and services, and good health is considered a privilege. ITPC communities work towards developing a greater understanding of affordable treatment and services as a basic entitlement and core pillar of their right to life, and demanding meaningful participation in securing their basic human rights.
The Global Secretariat supports ITPC-affiliated regional networks and community partners through enhancing treatment literacy; amplifying ideas, information and actions; linking diverse group of peoples and institutions; and working alongside communities to advocate for access to health, a fundamental human right.
