To address the challenges in EECA and ensure no one is left behind in the global effort to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic, the Elton John AIDS Foundation and Gilead Sciences have partnered together in a ground-breaking initiative called RADIAN. RADIAN aims to meaningfully address new HIV infections and deaths from AIDS-related illnesses in EECA through focussed action, investment and resourcing to improve the quality of prevention and care for people at risk of or living with HIV in the region.

This is the final call for proposals planned under RADIAN at this time. The Fund is looking to support sustainable, evidence-informed interventions that address the most significant and urgent unmet needs of Key Populations and people living with HIV. Supported interventions will measurably improve HIV-related outcomes; reduce stigma and discrimination experienced by people living with or most at risk of HIV; and document and disseminate learnings and results to help other cities, regions, and countries across EECA to end their HIV epidemic.

Applicants can apply for projects lasting up to 24 months. Programmes may be implemented in Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Russian Federation, Serbia, Slovenia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, or Uzbekistan.


The Foundation will be hosting an informational webinar for organisations interested in applying for a RADIAN Unmet Need Fund grant. This webinar will guide applicants through the RADIAN Unmet Need Fund Opportunity Announcement and application process, and will provide an opportunity for participants to ask questions on the Opportunity Announcement and application process.

The webinar will be held on September 2nd 2022 at 11:00-12:30 (London)/13:00-14:30 (Kyiv/Moscow).
