Thanks to treatment advances, HIV/AIDS is no longer a death sentence. Instead it’s a manageable chronic condition for most of the 25,000 Australians who live with the disease. With a long and proud history of being at the forefront of HIV/AIDS care, doctors and researchers at St Vincent’s remain committed to finding a cure and helping marginalised HIV positive patients access essential services.
To support this the Foundation established the St Vincent’s HIV Future Fund. This $1 million fund will support HIV positive marginalised patients through:
- Universal treatment – ensuring everyone has access to HIV treatment, including those who are not eligible for Medicare.
- Stanford House – funding the refurbishment of a short-term residential service for HIV positive homeless people at St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney.
- Medical research – investigating the impact of HIV on the body as it ages and other associated conditions.
Help the Foundation reach their $1 million goal to support HIV positive patients by donating to the St Vincent’s HIV Future Fund today.
