The Competition


We asked community groups around the world to produce a short film documenting how their work is contributing to the end of mother to child transmission of HIV in their community.

We asked that the films should be ‘in the footsteps’ of either beneficiaries, your team, community health workers, clinic teams or others involved in the project to showcase the very people making positive change a reality. Entries were also asked to demonstrate the impact of the intervention on people in the community and in so doing, highlight how Every Footstep Counts.

We received over 40 entries, each telling a compelling story. All entries were put to the Public Vote, receiving over 100,000 votes from across the globe. The top 6 videos that received the highest number of votes progressed to the judging panel, who selected their top two videos.


And the winners are…

It gives us great pleasure to announce the winners of Every Footstep Counts 2016:

In joint second place…

Pro-Life Advancement and Education Partners (PLAEP) – Esther, A Beacon of Hope!

World Vision Uganda – TTC Contribution in the Elimination of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV/AIDS

In joint first place…

India Health Action Trust (IHAT) – A Tale To Tell

Public Health Research Institute of India (PHRII) – Change Makers

All winners will receive an unrestricted grant of $10,000 and were supported to attend the International AIDS Conference 2016 in Durban, South Africa.


Thank you!

We would like to thank everyone who entered the Every Footstep Counts competition and shared their story. We have been overwhelmed by the quality of the films and want to thank you for providing a window into the reality of issues facing communities affected by HIV/AIDS. It is through your creative storytelling that the essential role of the community in the response to the HIV epidemic across the globe can be demonstrated.

Stay tuned for the return of our bi-annual Every Footstep Counts Competition launching in 2017. What story will you share?
