TASO Subscriber Membership Philosophy
The founding of TASO arose from a shared empathy for people affected by HIV and AIDS at a time of unprecedented stigma, discrimination, rejection and hatred directed towards people associated with the disease. It remained a unifying factor in mobilizing other stakeholders to join the response and it is that drive that became the Subscriber Membership Philosophy.
Membership is open to all regardless of one's sero status. What is important is having compassion for persons suffering as a result of HIV and AIDS.
