BRIEF OVERVIEW OF OUR HISTORY
PROGRAMS OF AID FOR AIDS VENEZUELA
ACCESS TO TREATMENT PROGRAM
This program facilitates access to treatment for people with HIV or AIDS that would otherwise not have access, or to those who bodies have resisted the treatment regimen provided by the Ministry of Health as part of the popular health system, offering them therapeutic alternatives according to the treating physician in Venezuela charged with monitoring and guaranteeing adherence.
PRIMARY PREVENTION PROGRAM “HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW?”
“¿Cuánto Sabes?” (How Much Do You Know about HIV and AIDS?) offers training for teachers who instruct boys, girls, and young people in educational institutions, health professionals, companies and organizations, people with HIV and their family members, and to the general public, empowering them with correct and current information about HIV and AIDS, including the development of life skills as proposed by the World Health Organization, in order to promote the eradication of stigma and discrimination towards people with HIV and AIDS. All of this is accomplished by incorporating techniques from neurolinguistic programming. Through the process of incorporating these techniques into your daily life, people become empowered with basic education in order to achieve a better quality of life and appreciate the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle.
