5 Rapid HIV tests
The cost and availability of HIV testing in remote villages and poor city neighborhoods is prohibitive for the average individual. Hence, most people do not know their status and continue to engage in potentially risky behavior. The combination of prevention education, condoms, and testing is the foundation of Amazon Promise’s ¡Soy Capaz! campaign developed in response to a sharp increase in the prevalence of HIV in the communities where we work.
This gift will provide five comprehensive HIV tests, allowing those at risk to learn their HIV status, and be referred to the Peruvian Ministry of Health for counseling and enrollment in the government's antiretroviral treatment program.
