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 $130 million in medication to over 20,000 people in 43 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.
Donate HIV Medicines to AID FOR AIDS. Donors are a very important part of AFA, and we welcome your assistance in donating medicine for people in need. AID FOR AIDS takes all unexpired antiretroviral and HIV prophylaxis medications in their original containers. AFA accepts sealed containers of liquid and powder medications, and both sealed and unsealed containers of pills.
