The Interagency Coalition on AIDS and Development (ICAD) is a coalition of approximately 100 AIDS service organizations (ASOs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), faith-based organizations, educational institutions, labour unions and individuals. ICAD provides leadership in reducing the impact of the global HIV and AIDS epidemic. ICAD does this through improving public policy, providing information and analysis, and sharing lessons learned. ICAD also plays a global convening, policy and advocacy role on issues of HIV, TB and global health, including at the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria and the UN Joint Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).  Learn more about joining ICAD here.
