Medicine-drive-adAID FOR AIDS (AFA) will be launching its Third Annual HIV Medicine Drive from July 15th to 30th in support of its HIV Medicine Recycling Program.

HIV Medicine Recycling is part of AFA’s Access to Treatment Program, a unique component of our work here at AFA and the largest of its kind in the world. We collect unused and unexpired medications related to the treatment of HIV and redistribute them to people with HIV who do not have proper access to treatment in developing countries. Since 1996, AFA has sent nearly $100 million in HIV medication to over 11,500 people in more than 40 countries.

This year’s Medicine Drive hopes to increase the number of HIV medication donations and to raise awareness about our Recycling Program. All donated medications will go towards AFA’s Access to Treatment Program.

Come join us to help improve the quality of life for people with HIV around the world by donating your unused and unexpired medications!
