ViiV Healthcare Announces Support for Community-Based Organizations With New Monkeypox Emergency Response Fund in the US

08/10/2022 | 04:24am EDT

DURHAM, N.C. - ViiV Healthcare, the global specialist HIV company majority owned by GSK, with Pfizer Inc. and Shionogi Limited as shareholders, today announced an emergency response fund for community-based organizations that are responding to the monkeypox virus outbreak, which last week the US Department of Health and Human Services declared a public health emergency as the US outbreak has grown into the largest in the world.[i]

As monkeypox cases surge across the US and disproportionately affect LGBTQ communities, particularly men who have sex with men, and people living with HIV, ViiV Healthcare's Positive Action Monkeypox Emergency Response Fund will make available $500,000 in grants to help community-based organizations who serve people living with HIV respond to the emerging Monkeypox public health crisis.

Lynn Baxter, Head of ViiV Healthcare North America, said: "We see again the critical role that community-based organizations play in responding to public health emergencies and pandemics. Our Monkeypox Emergency Response Fund is designed to help frontline, grassroots organizations respond to the monkeypox emergency in the US by providing much needed financial support to continue their work and meet the urgent need for monkeypox prevention, screening and education. For the past 30 years, we have worked alongside community-based organizations to address the evolving needs of the HIV community and this fund is another example of our ongoing support."

ViiV Healthcare's Monkeypox Emergency Response Fund will support US community-based organizations. Eligible US organizations should submit applications via the online grants portal at https://viivhealthcare.fluxx.io/ for up to $50,000 to support increased outreach, education, testing, and access to prevention and care for monkeypox in community settings. Funding cannot be used for the provision of medical care or the salaries of licensed medical professionals. Applications may be submitted on a rolling basis between August 10 and September 30, 2022. For more information, see the Request for Proposals here.
