AVERT is an international HIV and AIDS charity working to avert the spread of HIV through education, treatment and care. We do this in three ways. Our website www.avert.org provides thoroughly researched, up to date information and education on all aspects of HIV and AIDS. Our Information and Advocacy service answers enquiries from all over the world, providing confidential help and advice to the general public. We also partner with independent organisations which implement projects that emphasise sustainable community-based responses to HIV and AIDS, in South Africa and Malawi, two countries that have been worst hit by the HIV epidemic. Through these activities we are able to reach over 34 million people with education, treatment and care. This amazing impact has only been achieved because of AVERT’s donors. It’s their support that makes a real, genuine difference in the plight to avert AIDS.
