The global momentum to address the devastating impact of HIV/AIDS is greater now than at any other time in the course of the pandemic. With this comes new hope and new challenges.

Over the last twenty years, there has been a considerable increase in the number and range of NGOs involved in responding to the multiple challenges presented by HIV/AIDS: NGOs undertaking HIV/AIDS work; NGOs integrating HIV/AIDS-specific interventions within other health programming, such as sexual and reproductive health and NGOs mainstreaming HIV/AIDS within development, human rights, and humanitarian programming. There have also been significant changes in the global funding environment, particularly in ensuring that the lessons learned over the past 20 years are used to guide the allocation of resources in scaling up responses to HIV/AIDS.

These changes both support and complicate the process of expanding the scale and impact of NGO programs, so urgently needed. The proliferation of NGOs and programs has, at times, occurred at the expense of accountability and quality programming and has led to fragmentation of the NGO "voice" in the HIV/AIDS response.

To address these new challenges, a multi-agency project was set up to develop the Code of Good Practice for NGOs Responding to HIV/AIDS. The project aims to:
* support evidence-based programs by outlining the principles and evidence that underscore successful NGO HIV/AIDS work
* assist NGOs to improve the quality and cohesiveness of their work on HIV/AIDS and strengthen their accountability to their partners and beneficiary communities
* foster greater collaboration between the wide variety of NGOs now involved in responding to HIV/AIDS
* renew the NGO voice by enabling NGOs to commit to a shared vision of good practice in their programming and advocacy.

Over 160 NGOs around the world are signatories to Renewing Our Voice: Code of Good Practice for NGOs Responding to HIV/AIDS.

The principles set out in this Code can be applied to the diversity of HIV/AIDS around the world and provide invaluable guidance for:
* organizational planning
* the development, implementation, and evaluation of programs, including advocacy programs designed to create and sustain a supportive legislative and policy environment for effective programming and that promote the rights of people living with HIV/AIDS and affected communities
* advocacy efforts to ensure effective scaling up of HIV/AIDS programs
* allocation of resources.

The Code is available as an accessible paperback book, with a summary wall poster included. PDF files of the Code, along with support materials are also available online at www.ifrc.org/what/health/hivaids/code/
