It has the Positive Action Programme that works with those communities most vulnerable to HIV disease, including youth, girls and women, sex workers, gay men, men who have sex with men (MSM), transgender people, injecting drug users (IDU), the homeless and the incarcerated.

The Positive Action for Children Fund aims to provide support and deliver prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) services, which empower mothers and children across the globe. The fund provides larger grants to NGOs and community-based organizations. The fund issues annual call for proposals.
