NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH BOEING TO BRING CARE TO HIV-AFFECTED FAMILIES IN THREE COUNTRIES
A generous new grant from Boeing’s Global Corporate Citizenship program will allow HealthRight International to expand its MAMA+ Project in three countries in 2010. This exciting partnership with Boeing will strengthen HealthRight and its local partners’ efforts to build access to essential health care for HIV-positive women and their families in Russia, Ukraine and Viet Nam.
The MAMA+ Project is a comprehensive model to address the underlying practices and policies that deny access to quality, life-saving for women, children and families living with and affected by HIV. Since its launch in Russia in 2005, MAMA+ has since been adapted to serve communities in three countries, and facing a variety of challenges, including stigma and discrimination, substance abuse, and lack of adequate support for dealing with HIV-infection. As in all of HealthRight’s projects, MAMA+ works through local partnerships, capacity building and advocacy to ensure that results are locally-owned and long-lasting.
The new partnership with Boeing will ensure that even more women and families receive the quality, rights-based health care to save their lives, and help them build a healthy, happy future.
