Our Nutritional Support Program served 10,491 meals to HIV+ adults and their children from 2015 to 2017.
Your #GIVINGTUESDAY donation will provide over 4,000 meals in 2018.
People with HIV in Mali can potentially lose their jobs or livelihoods from severe social stigmatization. The Nutritional Support Program cooks meals twice a week for all of the HIV+ community members, their children, and the clinic staff. Sharing a meal together between patients and staff is an important stigma-reducing activity that also provides critical nutritional support.
Our Free HIV Testing Program has provided 17,895 HIV tests for pregnant women and 3,205 HIV tests for individuals since 2005.
Your #GIVINGTUESDAY donation will support the construction of new lab rooms to continue to provide free, confidential HIV testing to thousands of individuals in Mali.
GAIA's goal is to support our healthcare provider partners in Mali. This year, the clinic's dream is to expand their laboratory space.
