Funder Spotlight: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS
DIFFA KC supports Truman Medical Centers in its prevention and education programs related to HIV and AIDS. With DIFFA’s generous support, TMC peer educators assist patients in navigating a complex healthcare system, and work with the healthcare team to provide much-needed resources. Because many HIV/AIDS patients face challenges such as lack of transportation, or suffer with depression or other mental health problems, DIFFA’s funding ensures that persons with HIV have access to important information related to risk reduction, self-care management, and medication directions. Together, TMC and DIFFA are improving health care access and knowledge of medication and treatment options for HIV+ patients.
