HIV is virtually 100% preventable. Every individual can control his or her susceptibility with the decisions he or she makes.
TRIAD’s goal is to prevent the transmission of HIV/AIDS and to reduce the incidence of AIDS-related deaths.
The mission is to train local leaders to create and sustain HIV education programs for vulnerable youth.
The TRIAD Trust is a consortium of exceptional artists, musicians, journalists, filmmakers, athletes, coaches, physicians, educators, policy-makers and health care advocates dedicated to increasing HIV/AIDS awareness and encouraging prevention. These programs use sports, arts, and technology to provide kids with the tools they need to lead an HIV-free life.
TRIAD’s staff and expert volunteers visit and assess the specific needs of a high-prevalence community with exceptional respect for maintaining its cultural integrity.
While in partner communities, TRIAD’s staff and volunteers:
- - Identify talented and interested local leaders & the activities that inspire them;
- - Train these leaders to create, run &effect health education programs through those activities;
- - Nurture professional development & proessional development;
- - Sustain by providing tools to establish financial independence.
