This international HIV/AIDS charity dedicates a section of its website to traditional medicine, and with good reason — traditional medicines are especially popular with people who have HIV. The website provides advice for those seeking traditional remedies for HIV, lists potential therapies and highlights the role of traditional healers in combating HIV in Africa. It advocates that traditional healers are well placed to encourage HIV prevention, and convince people to get tested for HIV if they are at risk.
