Provide medications, supplemental nutrition, and community health worker support to 45 HIV-positive children in central China, whose parents contracted HIV through paid plasma donation. 30 of these kids have been orphaned by the disease.

In the early 1990s, hundreds of thousands of peasants in central China contracted HIV when they sold blood to alleviate their poverty, leaving behind a generation of HIV-positive children whose caretakers are unprepared for managing their treatment. Ling is one such child, living in rural Anhui with his grandfather. Both of his parents have died of AIDS. Because his elderly grandfather has trouble remembering to give him his medication, drug adherence is a challenge for Ling. You can help him.


PATS trains and employs local community health workers who educate caretakers and provide HIV-positive children with comprehensive medical support, access to live-saving drugs, and a monthly food package.

Long-Term Impact

PATS is helping 45 HIV-positive children grow up to become healthy, productive adults, starting from 16 children in 2007. We are spreading our successful model by developing a manual for pediatric HIV care that will be distributed throughout China.
