Who We Are

The Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance (EAA) provides an overall coordinating and support role in the planning of the faith based elements of the IAC, and in doing so facilitates others to take on the leadership of individual elements of the conference in a collaborative manner.
A number of key principles guide our faith-based planning and work together for the IAC:


  • Our process is open, inviting and transparent
  • We respect our differences and are committed to working together and learning from one another
  • We will be energetic and creative 

  • We promote the greater involvement of people living with HIV and AIDS in all that we do 

  • We can do more together than alone, we are both local and global, and we are first and foremost promoting our work together rather than individual organizations or agendas 

  • We are motivated by and grounded in our respective faiths.
The Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance

The Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance (EAA) is a global network of churches and church-related organizations working in advocacy and campaigning on HIV and AIDS and food. With more than 100 participating churches and organizations, big and small, the network reaches every continent and a constituency of hundreds of millions of Christians.
The Alliance coordinating office is based in Geneva, Switzerland at the Ecumenical Center.
