Don't Let Those Unneeded
Medications Go to Waste
AID for AIDS is an organization which seeks to remedy that waste by receiving donated meds and redistributing them to countries where they are unavailable. Their work, currently focused in Latin America, provides hope for individuals who otherwise would have no access to the standard therapies. AID for AIDS is unusual in that they supply a given "cocktail" for that person which is crucial to avoiding drug resistance. They also supply the patients' doctors with the latest HIV/AIDS information.
The 501(c)3 nonprofit organization needs all the HIV antivirals, plus drugs to treat opportunistic infections and even general medications. To contribute unneeded medications, send them to: AID for AIDS, 515 Greenwich St. Suite #506, New York, NY 10013. For further information, call 212/337-8043 or e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
