All around the world, HIV/AIDS threatens all age groups, all aspects of society and all walks of life. The epidemic doesn't discriminate — and its effects are devastating. Lack of education about how to prevent its spread — along with a lack of funds — make HIV/AIDS a constant threat to communities everywhere.
Mercy Corps is helping to contain this deadly disease by promoting HIV/AIDS awareness in many countries. Through radio campaigns, distribution of informational materials, presentations in classrooms and other innovative methods, we are helping individuals learn how to prevent the disease, recognize its symptoms and care for patients.
