The main aim of ASHA foundation is to encourage people for HIV testing in a non-coercive and non-stigmatized environment, to network with non-government organization and to conduct research on the cause and treatment of HIV.
Dr. Alexander has worked really hard to establish the foundation; she has won many laurels for her commendable work. She told Red Bangle: “It’s been a challenge, a real challenge; there have been a lot of frustrations, lots of successes and lots of failures. But, overall I have tremendously enjoyed what I have done, especially when I look at prevention of mother to child transmission.”
She said that somebody even asked her about the 27 million pregnancies affected with HIV, but she could only save one lakh. So has she changed anything vis-a-vis HIV/ AIDS? She replies, “Saving even a single child who could have been infected with HIV makes a difference.”
