Announcing the major new initiative on Thursday (12Jul18), the I Guess That's Why They Call it the Blues singer said, "Two years ago at the 21st International AIDS Conference in Durban, South Africa the Duke of Sussex and I participated in a panel looking at HIV and youth - the only age demographic where HIV infections are rising not falling. Since then, my Foundation, along with other partners, have been undertaking participatory, human-centred design research collectively covering six countries.

"A critical finding from this work is the urgent need to rapidly scale up men’s access to and engagement in HIV testing and treatment services."

In addition to the new coalition’s launch Elton John AIDS Foundation bosses will host a press conference to announce new partners in its Eastern Europe & Central Asia Key Populations Fund, launched in October 2017, as well as the first grant awards under the fund and proposed activities.
