    WHAT:       The ViiV Healthcare Effect
                (www.ViiVHealthcareEffect.com) introduces our
                company's approach to partnerships in a unique and personal
                way. Today ViiV Healthcare continues to support communities
                around the world through an enriched Positive Action
                portfolio: its heritage global grants programme for
                vulnerable groups; the new Positive Action for Children Fund
                to tackle mother-to-child transmission; and Community Grants
                from our local operating companies. This website brings these
                projects that we have on the ground to life.

                The ViiV Healthcare Effect offers a fresh way of learning
                about our work and its impact. The site also showcases best
                practices throughout the world. Visit the site to hear

                this audio-visual experience with your friends and

                ViiV Healthcare Effect is global. Through the site, you can
                take a tour
                [viivhealthcareeffect.com/tour-our-programmes/let-us-show-you-around.aspx ]
                of projects that directly address the needs of local
                communities in the Democratic Republic of Congo
                and Lesotho
                as well as those that have a broader regional
                or even global
                perspective.    WHY:        We've seen how the programmes we support directly impact
                [viivhealthcareeffect.com/global-hiv-challenge/areas-of-unmet-need.aspx ]
                tackling stigma and discrimination, providing education and
                resources, and testing innovations in care and treatment for
                HIV. We feel that if can we share our expertise, and get
                more people to talking about our valuable learnings, the
                more connections we can make and perhaps most importantly,
                the broader our impact can be.
