Our values

  • Useful
  • Reliable
  • Responsive

These core values are at the heart of NAM’s work. They underpin everything we do and how and why we do it. We have built our reputation on these values and they are the reason we are such a trusted source of high-quality information on HIV.

Our goal is to support people living with HIV to live longer, healthier lives. At NAM we believe information enhances life and enables people to:

  • Take control of their lives and health care
  • Understand and adhere to their HIV treatment
  • Develop better dialogues with their healthcare staff
  • Live longer, healthier and better quality lives.

Information enables professionals to:

  • Deliver the best services for people with HIV
  • Offer the most effective support for people living with HIV.

To deliver our work effectively we have to be useful, reliable and responsive.   

We make sure every resource we produce reflects these values.  

These values are embedded into our individual and team approach to working at NAM. 

NAM has grown, evolved and developed over the years in response to the changing epidemic, and the changing needs of people living with and working in HIV. The one thing that hasn’t changed is our values, these have remained the same since NAM was founded in 1987 and will continue to be at the heart of NAM’s work now and in the future.

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
