Office of AIDS Research (OAR)

The OAR takes on every aspect of the fight against AIDS. From fundraising to actual medical research, this organization participates. According to the OAR mission statement this organization, "...coordinates the scientific, budgetary, legislative, and policy elements of NIH AIDS research." HIV/AIDS has become a force to contend with all over the world. Entire families can be affected by this condition, or destroyed by the death of a family memeber.
OAR sponsers many research groups. Each is specifically focused on different aspects of the disease and treatment options. $20,000 and 6 months of volunteering could do a world of difference in the process of finding a cure.

  1. It's always staggering to me to think or learn about the effect that AIDS has had in the world, medically, socially, politically, and many other -allys. I don't know if they'll find a cure for it, but I can only imagine how that would transform the lives of countless millions.
