What is Fundacion Huesped?
We are an Argentinean organization with projects that reach throughout Latin America responding to HIV/AIDS as both an infectious disease and a social challenge. We work to improve information, education and prevention access; expand public support; facilitate research and continuing education of health professionals and increase availability of social and health services, including protection against discrimination.
