advancing Asia's sexual Health literacy
While tremendous progress has been made in the global fight against HIV/Aids, more needs to be done – especially in Asia. The Asia-Pacific region is home to nearly 60% of the world’s population, and there are more HIV-positive people here than in any region outside of sub-Saharan Africa.
In 2019, there were 5.8 million people in Asia living with HIV. Although the rate of new infections has declined over the past decade, many more men and women need important health information that empowers them to take control of their sexual health.
Unfortunately, such information is either unavailable, hard to access, or available only in English on the Internet for many minority communities in Asia.
Equalising access to knowledge
As part of our mission to equalise access to important information about sexual health, including HIV and its latest updates and treatments, we are first turning our attention to Myanmar, and need help paying for the costs of translating our articles into Burmese.
Strengthening HIV/Aids prevention in Myanmar
Your donation will go to helping the men and women of Myanmar gain access to our rich content of articles on how to prevent HIV, what to do if you get exposed, and the available treatments out there for people living with HIV.
Here are some examples of our articles:
With US$5,000 as our goal, we hope to pay for the cost of translating our current and upcoming volume of articles on HIV awareness and prevention to Burmese for the next 3 – 6 months.
Fund-raising for other languages
If you would like to support the translation of our content into other languages, please include a note about the language you would like to fund, and we will put your donation towards a fund for that language. Our immediate language goals, apart from Burmese, include Khmer, Bahasa Melayu, and Arabic.
Your donation will allow our content to reach underserved communities in Myanmar (and other territories), who do not have the same access to services that could let them lead freer, healthier lives.
Thank you very much for your support.
