AIDSRelief: Providing Treatment, Restoring Hope in Zambia

This video provides a brief overview of the AIDSRelief program in Zambia. Also, it highlights the stories of the in-field volunteers who counsel others on taking their antiretroviral therapy.

AIDSRelief is responding to the HIV crisis by expanding access to lifesaving antiretroviral therapy. Funded through the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, five leading organizations joined together to help turn despair into hope for people living with HIV. AIDSRelief supports the delivery of HIV care and treatment to poor and underserved populations in Guyana, Haiti, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. AIDSRelief partners are faith-based institutions who are the key to long-term success of this program.
