Description of Agency
AIDS Alive Mission
Raising awareness and promoting prevention, particularly among those who feel they are not impacted by HIV/AIDS; and
Raising resources to support organizations that address the psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of this disease
The 4 A's of HIV/AIDS Education:
- Acceptance: Accepting one's self and recognizing that there are seeds of greatness in each of us.
- Affection: A mutual respect between youth and parents and an understanding of trust in the family.
- Accountability: To be responsible for your choices no matter what the consequences.
- Abstinence: A call to action that challenges youth to have the courage to abstain from alcohol, drugs, and pre-marital sex.
We feel the mission of AIDS AliveÂ® is a timely one. Advances in medicine and the use of cocktails are enabling many people infected with HIV/AIDS to live longer. There is widespread concern that the positive advances in treating this disease are dissipating the focus of AIDS as a crisis resulting in less focus on prevention and more difficulty fund raising among organizations who provide various AIDS services.
AIDS is still a crisis: many of those infected are still dying untimely deaths and many more people continue to become infected. Through AIDS AliveÂ®, we will continue to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS, and raise resources to support organizations providing critical assistance for those who are learning how to live with this disease - those who are responding positively to medical advances, those who are not, and their families and care givers.
