AID FOR AIDS present at Pride March!
AID FOR AIDS (AFA) joined the Pride March that took place in Bogotá, Lima, Panama City and New York City.
In the 1990s, the number of AIDS-related deaths was on the rise, significantly affecting the LGTBQ+ community. That is why, in 1996 from New York City, Jesús Aguais founded AID FOR AIDS, offering HIV medications to those without access in Latin America and the Caribbean.
AID FOR AIDS supports the LGBTQ+ community, especially during Pride Month as this month represents the fight for acceptance, inclusion, equality, education and awareness of the issues of the community.
“The presence of AID FOR AIDS in these events is very important because we support the LGTBQ+ community and we also offer information on HIV prevention. We align with the UNAIDS goal: to end the HIV epidemic by 2030.” This was stated by Jesús Aguais, executive director of AID FOR AIDS International.
