HIV Prevention

The Alivio en ROJO project was created specifically to help educate the community on HIV but most importantly to end the stigma behind it. Through fostering education, awareness, and compassion with community outreach, public campaigns, and providing accessible health care services, the Alivio en ROJO team effectively challenges misconceptions against those living with HIV.

What is HIV?

The acronym HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus. HIV weakens people’s immune systems by destroying important cells that fight disease and infection.
