Gilead Sciences Inc has announced the launch of the 2019 Gilead Asia Pacific Rainbow Grants program, an initiative that supports community-led programs for people living with HIV in the Asia Pacific region. For the first time, non-governmental or advocacy organizations in India are invited to submit their applications for a funding online.
This year’s grants program seeks to improve the quality of life of people living with HIV by focusing on three priority areas like access and quality of life, multidisciplinary care, and diversity and inclusion.
Rahul Bargaje, MD, Public Health and Medical Affairs Director at Gilead Sciences India, said, “We are pleased to bring the Rainbow Grants program to India this year. Gilead has been championing the cause of access to care in India and we believe in the power of partnerships to bring about solutions that can make a difference. We hope this grants program will help civil society organizations in India further their efforts in improving HIV management and positively impact the care and support for local community members living with HIV.”
Amy Flood, Senior Vice President, Public Affairs, Gilead Sciences, added, “At Gilead, we believe that strong community partnerships can have a significant impact in improving the care and support for people living with serious diseases. Gilead’s Asia Pacific Rainbow Grants program is one way that we work with community groups and support projects that place people at the center of care. We look forward to supporting organizations in the region, to help enable people living with HIV reach their fullest potential each day and live a fulfilling life.”
