ETAF was established by Elizabeth Taylor in 1991 to provide grants to existing organizations for domestic and international programs that offer direct care services to people living with HIV and AIDS. Since its inception, ETAF has concentrated on supporting marginalized communities, and has expanded to also fund innovative HIV education and advocacy programs.
ETAF is leading an international coalition to achieve UNAIDS 90-90-90 HIV treatment goals in Mulanje District, Malawi by 2020. With key domestic advocacy funding focuses on comprehensive sexual health education and HIV criminalization reform, ETAF continues to bring the marginalized to the center of attention and advocate for their rights.
To date ETAF has granted to more than 675 organizations in 44 countries and 42 states in the U.S.
