amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, is one of the world’s leading nonprofit organizations dedicated to the support of AIDS research, HIV prevention, treatment education, and the advocacy of sound AIDS-related public policy. Since 1985, amfAR has invested nearly $325 million in its programs and has awarded grants to more than 2,000 research teams worldwide. It has funded Jamaica Forum for Lesbians and Allsexuals and Gays before on a two year cycle which ended some time ago with half of what was on the schedule not met but diverted to crisis interventions in particular as many homophobic cases required some serious financial interventions.
The announcement was made recently and awarded to two Jamaican entities unnamed but more than likely Jamaica Forum for Lesbians and Allsexuals and Gays, JFLAG and Jamaica AIDS Support for Life JASL, why they choose to remain anonymous is anybody's guess.
