Help us, help those effected with HIV/AIDS in North Texas

DIFFA/DALLAS

Ticket Information

Ticket Type Price Fee Quantity
$25 can purchase one HIV test
People who know their status and get treatment live longer, healthier lives and are less likely to spread the disease. For every person you help prevent infection of HIV, you save our community $357,142 in health care costs!
$25.00 $0.00
$50 can purchase one prescription co-pay
Failure to adhere to medications increases the HIV virus, strengthens drug resistance, and eventually causes death. Copay expenses often prohibit people from refilling their prescriptions. HIV positive patients who consistently adhere to their medication regimen can reduce the risk of transmission to others by as much as 96%!
$50.00 $0.00
$75 can purchase two hours of HIV prevention education
AIDS is now the #1 killer of all women ages 15-45 across the globe, the #1 killer of U.S. Blacks ages 25-44, and the #2 killer for Latinos of the same age. Youth under the age of 24 account for 24% of new infections. Education and risk reduction interventions are critical to stopping the spread of HIV. You help reduce infections in all communities.
$75.00 $0.00
$100 can purchase four doctor visit co-pays
The cost for regular medical care and case management for one patient is about $2, 800 (not including medications) and includes four doctor visits per year BEFORE issues become acute emergencies which costs the city millions. Copays for visits (for people with income and insurance) average $25 per visit. By encouraging regular care you can help Dallas taxpayers save up to $6 million a year in unnecessary Emergency Room usage when people have access to affordable outpatient care.
$100.00 $0.00
