CHIVA is the voice of children and young people in the UK. It aims to ensure that every child with HIV in the UK has optimum healthcare and social support to enable them to live well with HIV, and to tackle HIV related stigma and discrimination and raise awareness and understanding of HIV.

Dr Amanda Williams, chair of CHIVA, said: “We at CHIVA (The Children’s HIV Association) are delighted and honoured that Prince Harry and Ms.Meghan Markle have chosen to recognise our work in supporting the health and wellbeing of children and young people living with HIV in the UK and Ireland."

"We are grateful for the opportunity to raise awareness of the complex issues for young people living and growing up with HIV, including the psychological effects of taking daily medication and dealing with the stigma that unfortunately still exists. We are a very small charity and through our work we support over 1000 young people living with HIV. All donations will make a significant difference to our programmes of work and lead to direct improvements in the lives of these young people." 

Congratulations to the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
