Today, the families of the AIDS Resource Foundation for Children stand together with other organizations, health institutes and departments, agencies, and community groups from around the world to share a message that HIV and AIDS is an illness that affects more than 33 million people across the globe… yet, the medical and service community knows that we can stop the spread of the virus. In our lifetime. We can do this through prevention, testing, and support for those who are living with the illness. We can do this through advocating for prevention education and programs that are targeted to local communities. ARFC's presence in the neighborhoods across New Jersey are working to address treatment adherence, housing instability, mental health, and the complexity of raising a family in the context of chronic illness and stigma.
We are committed to this work and mission of the ARFC. Stand with us as we remember those who have paved the way for all of us -- those who fought, those who struggled, those who left loved ones behind. Stand with us as we honor those who are still walking with us today and those who rely on us for strength. Stand with ARFC as we set a fast pace towards stopping the spread of HIV/AIDS.
