AID FOR AIDS (AFA) operates the largest HIV Medicine Recycling Program in the world. The HIV Medicine Recycling Program recovers unused, unexpired life-saving medication that otherwise would have been wasted and then re-distributes it to those without access in developing countries through the Access to Treatment Program. Through these programs, AFA works to provide the vital medication to people with HIV or AIDS and connects them to key services for treatment planning and resource management. Since 1996, AFA has sent over $140 million in medication to over 20,000 people in 59 countries.
EDUCATION AND TRAINING
¿Cuánto Sabes? is an innovative program using neuro-linguistic programming as its overarching framework, combining HIV and AIDS education with life skills as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO). The program is transmitted through peer-to-peer education techniques (Multiplying Agents). This model aims to prevent the spread of HIV by developing a culture of responsible and healthy sexuality. The program reaches over 100,000 youth per year and has been implemented in 8 different countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
AID FOR AIDS empowers community leaders and promotes leadership for people with HIV or AIDS, at-risk populations, and the community at large. Furthermore, the Department of Advocacy ensures the fulfillment of international, national and local commitments in response to the HIV epidemic. Working within the framework of social change, we support and promote the involvement of civil society (affected community) and community-based organizations in all levels.
