About us

Vision: Empowered stigma-free society.

Mission: To build an inclusive social environment for young people living with HIV and disability

Main Objective: To empower young people living with HIV and disability by creating an inclusive social environment that provides lifesaving healthcare, quality education, and opportunities for meaningful involvement, fostering positive social change.

Activate Action started in 2017 as a youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health center. In response to the prevalent stigma faced by young people living with HIV and disability in accessing essential services such as healthcare, education, and employment opportunities, the organization took a significant step in 2020. It officially registered as a Community-Based Organization (CBO) with the Ministry of Social Services, bearing the registration number CBO/HUD/HB/0098/2020.

Founded by a dedicated team of young individuals, Activate Action is driven by a shared vision of fostering an open society. The organization started with the recognition that HIV, disability, and gender should never serve as reasons for exclusion, fear, or stigma. Over the years, Activate Action has evolved into a force for positive change, working tirelessly to combat stigma and create an inclusive environment where young people, regardless of their health status or abilities, can access healthcare, education, and employment opportunities without facing discrimination. This history reflects the organization’s commitment to building a society where everyone is empowered, accepted, and afforded equal opportunities
