The Pact

Who We Are

Our Leadership

We are young, global and organized.


We envisage a world where young people are recognised as integral to ending the AIDS epidemic and are engaged as experts in decision-making processes and leaders in programmatic implementation

Mission Statement

The PACT, as a global coalition of youth-led organisations, works to secure meaningful youth engagement in global decision-making spaces and provides opportunities for youth-led accountability within the global AIDS response through engaging in global events and creating tools and learning environments for our membership.

We are a coalition of more than 80 youth-led and youth serving organizations and networks working together to advance sexual and reproductive health and rights and reach the end of AIDS by 2030.

Our leadership structure is made up of two executive roles, Chair and Vice-Chair, Leads and Co-Leads of various working groups who are responsible for guiding The PACT’s priority areas of work. The PACT is also supported and guided by an UNAIDS Adviser, responsible for providing additional support to The PACT coalition and an external Communications Lead.
