Aids & Child was founded 1988 when everybody was fearing an Aids pandemia in Europe and the scenario for Switzerland anticipated thousands of infected and/affected children. As we now all now, this luckily didn’t happen in Europe and Northern America – in Subsaharan Africa however it has become a tragic reality sadly increased by poverty and ignorance.
People getting involved with an organisation do so because they care for the cause, want to do something to strengthen civil society and help to strenghten the weak and help the poorest. These are the drivers behind the committment of the people on the strategical als well als the operational level of Aids & Child.
Operational Level – The Office
All operational work is done by the office. The operational team consists of the director Katharina von Allmen, the project coordinator Martin Ramsauer and the accountant Karin Würth.
