AVERT - providing education and care for people affected by HIV/AIDS across the world

HIV/AIDS affects 33.3 million people worldwide - 2.5 million of which are children. But a future without AIDS is possible. AVERT is a UK based, international HIV/AIDS charity that provides free education, support and care to people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Our website, www.avert.org reaches over 2.5 million people a month with HIV/AIDS education and has special sections for young people, including games, quizzes and videos. AVERT also uses donations to support projects based in South Africa and Malawi, who offer testing and care to people living with and affected by HIV. Our support means that local communities can respond to the effects of AIDS in sustainable ways, for example through creating food gardens for children who are orphaned as a result of AIDS and support groups for the carers of children. A future without AIDS is possible - if education and care continues to reach even more people. With extra funding, AVERT will be able to continue to make sure a difference is made for people who are living with and affected by HIV/AIDS worldwide. Please contact us at any time for any further information, on info@avert.org.
