Short description:
African Action on AIDS, Inc. (AAA) brings education and hope to HIV/AIDS-affected young people in 5 African nations.
AAA helps youth to learn about HIV/AIDS, to avoid infection, and to live happy and productive lives, no matter what their HIV status may be. AAA operates in the belief that these youthful parents of tomorrow - by learning the health habits that will keep them alive, and by becoming agents of change - will raise healthy and productive families. Through community-based education programs focused on family, AAA promotes the values of knowledge, self-respect, and responsibility for others. Using the prime educational precept, "Just Know," AAA operates through the network of Centers of Excellence. These centers are managed by qualified educational and community groups, that reach large numbers of young people efficiently, consistently, and with identifiable results.
