The Caribbean continues to be the region with the second highest prevalence of HIV/AIDS worldwide. It is with this in mind that the St. Maarten AIDS Foundation is revving up its efforts to combat this disease.
“We are expanding our prevention and care/treatment programs while also finding ways to combat stigma and discrimination. The Red Ribbon - Stronger Together partnership between Scotiabank and The St Maarten Aids Foundation welcomes the support of Maho Group’s participating hotels, who are launching an initiative which will assist us greatly in creating a more sustainable response to HIV/AIDS on our island,” President of St. Maarten AIDS Foundation Dr. Gerard van Osch said.
