HIV and AIDS
AIDS threatens the quality of life, economic progress and social structure of entire communities and countries. And it threatens to reverse decades of development work.
World Vision’s Response
World Vision has been combating global AIDSfor nearly two decades. The organization started its first AIDS programs among orphaned children in Uganda, HIV-infected children in Romania and young women caught in the sex trade in Thailand.
Encouraging testing—HIV testing and counseling can help people learn to live with the disease and protect themselves and their children.
Home-based care—In partnership with local churches and community leaders, World Vision staff and volunteers personally visit vulnerable children and people living with HIV and AIDS.
Sharing love and hope—Our compassionate staff and volunteers counsel and pray with children and families, demonstrating God’s unconditional love.
Prevention of mother-to-child transmission—We teach mothers and fathers how to avoid transmitting HIV to unborn or nursing children and support them in accessing antiretroviral drugs.
Work with high-risk groups—World Vision programs reach sex workers, truck drivers and migrant workers to educate, provide counseling and care, and offer alternative income generating opportunities.
Mobilizing youth—Acting on AIDS is a program started by Christian college students to create awareness and promote activism around the AIDS pandemic on college and university campuses across the United States.
Raise awareness—We seek to increase support for orphans and vulnerable children, families and adults affected by HIV and AIDS as well as share our expertise to benefit as many people as possible.
