Special Fundraising Event

ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION: World Health Clinicians is a non-profit, 501(c)3 humanitarian organization founded by Dr. Gary Blick, Dr. Paola Greiger-Zanlungo, and Scott Gretz in 2010. With a mission to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted infections and reduce the associated morbidity and mortality in the developed and developing world through treatment, patient advocacy and assistance, and education, they created the BEAT AIDS: Project Zimbabwe (BAPZ) and CIRCLE CARE Center (CCC). After visiting Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, one of the “Seven Natural Wonders of the World”, and witnessing how HIV/AIDS has devastated its people, they founded BAPZ. In collaboration with Zimbabwe's Ministry of Health and many partners working in Zimbabwe, BAPZ is working to save the next generation of Zimbabweans from HIV/AIDS through the virtual elimination of pediatric HIV/AIDS by 2015.

Why Zimbabwe? Zimbabwe has the world’s fourth highest rate of HIV prevalence, the annual population growth rate from 2000 to 2008 was ZERO percent, a reported 20.1% of Victoria Falls residents have HIV/AIDS, the highest in the nation of Zimbabwe, and there are over 1 MILLION Zimbabwean children left orphaned by HIV/AIDS.

CCC, Connecticut’s only Center of Excellence for HIV/AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections and a model of excellence in meeting the needs of the tri-state LGBTQ community, provides comprehensive medical care and a vast array of medical and psychosocial services in one friendly, comfortable environment. CCC has been meeting the needs of the LGBTQ community since 1987.

WHC, a truly unique non-governmental, non-academic, non-profit organization, is seeking funding from individuals, philanthropies, foundations and the business sector to achieve their goals. BAPZ is already on the ground in Victoria Falls helping orphans and women with HIV/AIDS. WHC and CCC are moving into their new 5600+ square foot offices in Norwalk, CT by year's end.
