Our mission

Terrence Higgins Trust is at the forefront of the fight against HIV and improving the nation’s sexual health. Our vision, mission and values are set out below.

Our mission

  • To end the transmission of HIV in the UK.
  • To empower and support people living with HIV to lead healthy lives.
  • To amplify the voices of those affected by HIV across public and political arenas to eradicate
    stigma and discrimination.
  • To enable people to enjoy good sexual health.

Our vision

A world where people with HIV live healthy lives free from prejudice and discrimination, and good
sexual health is a right and reality for all.

Our values

Ambitious: We believe individuals, and communities, are a force for positive change. We drive ourselves, and others, to make things happen.

Honest: We communicate clearly, taking responsibility for both successes and challenges. We are transparent and accountable to our communities, donors and funders.

Different: We are radical professionals, proud of our diversity and united by a common cause. We support, respect and value each other and work without prejudice.

Independent: We are an independent charity, rooted in the communities we serve. We use our voice to challenge and inspire change in health services, public policy and people’s attitudes.
