Make a Contribution to a Foundation who puts ARVs into communities
Learn about the Clinton Foundation's Global Initiative HERE
We are no authority on their programming but we do know that the health
programs we have seen in Malawi identify the Clinton Foundation and the
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as the sources of the Anti-retroviral
drugs they give to people who are HIV Positive. The Clinton Foundation
actively seeks contributions but we do not know of the same efforts with
the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
