Our Guiding Principles and purpose of Hepatitis, AIDS, Research Trust


All lives, no matter where a person lives, no matter what what their religious faith may be, no matter the color of their skin,  ALL have equal value;

Education is the greatest weapon in combating diseases and less expensive than the treatment of those same diseases.;

Infectious diseases will have a vast notable impact on society, all societies;

That all of the countries around the world will feel the impact of infectious diseases, because these diseases are not concerned about a countries' national boarder

Technology has a great potential to improve lives around the world

Our focus is clear and we prioritize some of the most neglected issues around the world;

Identify specific points of interventions and apply our efforts towards that change;

We advocate in our areas of focus;

We treat each other as valued colleagues;

That no one is an island unto themselves, we are all interconnected within this world;

That if we cannot help the least within society, we cannot help anyone within society;

The cost of education is far cheaper than cost of treatment for any illness
