The medication is free. but many Still cannot afford it.
The mission of Future in Our Hands-USA is to help improve the quality of life for people in East Africa, specifically in Kenya and Zambia. One way in which they accomplish this is by providing basic HIV health insurance to cover treatment for opportunistic infections and transportation to hospitals or clinics so people can acquire their otherwise-free HIV/AIDS medication. Without the necessary transportation, these men, women and children are often unable to access the treatment they require to live abundant lives.

The HIV/AIDS Epidemic in East Africa
Although the number of new HIV/AIDS cases is declining, there are still a large number of people living in rural areas in East Africa that cannot afford basic HIV health insurance. They need help getting to hospitals or clinics to receive their HIV/AIDS medication. Although the local government provides the medication free of cost, many of these clinics are several miles away and out of reach. Therefore, patients have no choice but to go without their medication–a sad reality that FIOH-USA is determined to bring to an end. With your help, we can provide infected men, women and children with the means to acquire the proper HIV/AIDS treatment and live thriving lives.

We need your help to increase this number and expand a meaningful quality of live to those who need it.
