What is AVERT?
AVERT is an international HIV and AIDS charity based in the UK, with the aim of AVERTing HIV and AIDS worldwide.
AVERT has a number of overseas projects, helping with the problem of HIV/AIDS in countries where there is a particularly high rate of infection, such as South Africa, or where there is a rapidly increasing rate of infection such as in India.
And through our highly successful web site, www.avert.org, we take education and information to people in almost every country in the world.
But there is still no cure for HIV/AIDS, and many millions of people around the world are dying each year. More effective treatment is needed, and so AVERT continues with HIV/AIDS medical research to contribute to this."
