Caring for people living with HIV and our people:

In these unprecedented times, we took several measures to protect the well-being of the communities in which we operate and that of our people. We suspended all face-to-face interactions in clinics, hospitals, Aids services organizations and other offices we interact with on March 16th, 2020.  Virtual interactions have been implemented to continue providing education and support for the people in need of our medications, people living with HIV, case managers, healthcare providers and their staff, on how to manage HIV during the COVID-19 pandemic.
