Tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS, two of the worst plagues ravaging the developing world, both increase nutrient and calorie requirements and cause a severe loss of weight, strength, and energy. Hunger and lack of adequate nutrition will significantly hinder, if not derail, a patient's treatment program. Without an more and better food, HIV positive patients can become more susceptible to opportunistic infection, which can hasten the onset of AIDS.

Partners In Health (PIH) works with local communities in Peru to deliver the extra nutrition and calories that these high-risk patients need.

For $35, fund a basket of staple foods lasting an entire month for a TB or HIV patient in Peru. Baskets include rice, milk, dry cereal, flour, eggs, cooking oil, and general non-perishables. Occasionally they include root vegetables like potatoes and carrots. The food baskets supplement the patients' normal food consumption to ensure the most successful course of treatment.

Or, for $40, fund six months of nutritional supplements for a TB or HIV patient in Peru. TB and HIV both increase nutrient and calorie requirements and cause a severe loss of weight, strength, and energy. You can help keep someone strong by providing extra nutritional supplementation, depending on individual medical needs.


Partners In Health (PIH) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation whose mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. Through service, training, advocacy, and research, and by establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations, PIH strives to achieve two overarching goals: to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair.
