How we can help in the cure of HIV/AIDS


  • One way to help Africa prevent HIV/AIDS is to better Africa's way of life. Not many know that HIV/Aids have been linked with other serious issues such as poverty and poor public infrastructures. The U.S can help by giving money to Africa for those basic needs.
  • Africa needs better healthcare so they can research a cure for HIV/AIDS. A lot of people in the U.S participate in athletic events to raise money to help find a cure. An example would be Ms. Kozitza partipating in the Red Ribbon Ride. (See info below)
