GAIA community-based HIV care and treatment clinic is the first such clinic in Mali and will be a model for the rest to follow.
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.
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
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.
