What is this project all about?
In Berlin, there are estimated 150 people living with an HIV-positive diagnosis, that don’t have access to the German health care system. Thus, these individuals have no access to full medical care system of our society (such as HIV antiviral medication).
Antiviral Therapy keeps HIV in check and thus a person can live
a relatively ’normal' life.
However, for uninsured persons, this is legally unavailable.
The project 'Uninsured with HIV' of the Berlin Aids-Hilfe e.V., sponsored by ViiV Healthcare - Positive Action Program, supports such individuals through counseling and case management.
We, the Perspektive A Plus gGmbH, are a nonprofit startup that provides services such as the integration of HIV-positive individuals and/or people with disabilities with a new outlooking their life, by providing job opportunities in the primary labor market.
Thanks to a legacy donation tied to creating jobs for HIV-positive people, we have sucessfully created four jobs since September, 2015.
We fulfill our mission - providing HIV-Positive and/or disabled people with new life perspectives - through direct donations and contracting our services. Whether it is project/event - management, internet solutions, fundraising or renting our locations and equipment.
We welcome every donations and contracts of hire that would help our mission. Today we would like to focus our efforts and your generous hearts on this page on our fundraising project to support our shareholder the Berlin Aids-Hilfe e.V in its efforts to help uninsured HIV-positive individuals in their difficult situation. We would like to create a job opportunity for one year, for a HIV-positive individual who does not have an health insurance covering HIV retroviral therapy, to give him/her a new brighter outlook.
With your generous help we will be able to create a one year partime position accompanied by a Coach and Casemanager that is already funden by the ViiV Healthcare Positive Action Program of the Berlin Aids-Hilfe e.V.

Why would you support this project?
An employement contract guarantees access to the healthcare system and thereby access to the life-saving anti-retroviral therapy. Helping an HIV-positive uninsured individual is not only philantropy, it’s active prevention with the bonus of getting this person back into working society.
It is now well known that an HIV-positive person, who is virally supressed, has virtually no chance of passing the virus to someone else.
Anti-retroviral treatment is therefore a useful HIV prevention tool, thus it’s interest of all, that HIV-positive individuals gain access to necessary medications.
All individuals shown in the course of the Project 'Uninsured with HIV' want to be employed and thus pay their part into the German healthcare system.
All of them are saying: 'Yes, I want to ... work!'.
We at Perspektive A Plus gGmbH (a non-profit) are
convinced that you value the community and see society's benefit in
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
