Challenge

40,000 people are served by the GAIA VF clinic. Before GAIA arrived, there was no HIV care. We provide full access to HIV medicine, TB care, nutritional support, peer education and psychosocial support. Our clinic protocols will be adapted for the Malian national decentralized HIV campaign.

Solution

With your support GAIA VF can Prevent: Mother to Child HIV Transmission Educate: Go door to door, teach Malians about TB/HIV prevention Care: Provide free HIV medication Feed: HIV patients share a weekly meal with our staff

Long-Term Impact

GAIA’s plan is to integrate our village-based clinic into the National Malian program within 5 years. We will pave the way to improve access to care in Mali.
