The HIV initiative of the Community of Sant’Egidio
What is DREAM ?
HIV/AIDS is a tremendous issue in Malawi.
Some 980,000 people are living with HIV/AIDS and 9.1% of the adult population aged 15 to 49 has the disease. In recent years, the number of HIV-positive people and AIDS sufferers has declined, but there are still 27,000 new HIV infections every year (2015, UNAIDS).
Against this backdrop, DREAM (Disease Relief through Excellent and Advanced Means) provides support to improve the health of HIV-positive people and AIDS patients, as well as to prevent mother-to-child transmission of the disease.
The Role of DREAM Centers
For Help needed for HIV/AIDS medications
A year’s medication for a patient is said to cost 100 euros (around 12,000 yen).
By taking medication, their health improves, they can become active members of their family and community again, and their confidence and hope return.
Your kind assistance is sought.
