AIDS Strategy, Advocacy and Policy (ASAP) is a small consulting organisation with associates around the world who share a clear commitment to ending AIDS and confronting global health, development and rights issues.
Originally established in 2011 with a focus on HIV and AIDS, ASAP has evolved to provide consultancy services and expertise on a broader range of global health and development issues, including tuberculosis (TB), malaria, sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), family planning, gender equality and gender-based-violence. ASAP’s work is firmly grounded in a community and civil society perspective and human rights.
We support organisations, projects, initiatives, and programmes that aim to highlight the voices and needs of vulnerable and marginalized individuals and communities, especially women and girls.
We aim to make a real difference to people’s lives through our work and are deeply passionate and committed to being part of a better response to ensure that all people have access to quality and equitable health care services.
Our approach is through our worldwide network of associates and experts: in Asia, Africa, Europe and the United States. These women and men are our global team. They have a broad and deep understanding of AIDS, global health, development. They bring decades of experience as advocates, technical and service providers and communications specialists.
Our associates offer on-the-ground expertise in strategic thinking, research and evaluation, advocacy, policy development, project management, international health and aid architecture, web-based organizing, civil society mobilisation and donor engagement.
ASAP was founded in 2010 by long-time AIDS and women’s health and rights advocate, Robin Gorna. Since February 2015, ASAP is led by a virtual team – Hilary Nkulu based in Pretoria, South Africa and Susan ‘Sue’ Perez based in New Delhi, India.
