Support for HIV/AIDS Patients

Franklin Junior Foundation see HIV/AIDS as a development issue of critical importance that affects tens of millions of people worldwide. Our HIV/AIDS prevention programs involve teaching life skills to youth, women of child-bearing age, and helping local organizations to effectively respond to this deadly scourge.

By focusing our efforts on prevention, we will be taking the most effective steps we can to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS, while the medical research community strives for a cure. At the same time our support for current patients is ongoing.
