Putting a Face on AIDS

Face AIDS is a national campaign to fight AIDS in Africa, with a brand new chapter on Vanderbilt's campus. The national campaign was started in 2005 at Stanford University, which now has chapters at high schools and colleges across the nation. Our chapter is dedicated to educating the Vanderbilt community about the AIDS pandemic in Africa, and supporting those affected by AIDS through micro-finance projects.
