East Timor


Guam / US Affiliated Pacific Territories

  • GUAHAN Project
      This Guam-based AIDS Service Organization uses its very limited funds to provide HIV prevention and care services to impoverished people who live in the U.S. affiliated Pacific region - American Samoa, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of Palau, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam - which suffers enormous health disparities due in part to very limited Federal assistance, and in part due to the post-colonial era annual per capita income: for example, it is only US$2,900 in the Marshall Islands, and US$2,300 in the Federated States of Micronesia. This organization and the fragile societies of incredibly unique, indigenous people it serves really need support.
