CHISTRE’s main goal is to deal with the HIV/AIDS crisis that is ravaging communities and cities throughout Nigeria and destroying lives. CHISTRE is trying to provide an integrated, holistic response to the crisis, ensuring increased effectiveness in combating the disease, while moving towards a more advanced society. CHISTRE is disseminating accurate information throughout the area, educating the public (with an emphasis on the younger generation) on all issues associated with HIV/AIDS and other STDs, and providing assistance to those already affected by the disease. We are also extremely focused on training peer educators, teachers, and health care professionals with the hopes of creating self-sustaining and self-sufficient environments, where people are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to take control of the problem themselves and create a better future for all. This will not only give people the opportunity to control their own destiny, but will also ensure that CHISTRE can expand their field of operations into surrounding communities and areas, reaching more and more people and extending the reach of accurate knowledge and information.
