Crossing Borders

In March 2004, Precious Jewels Ministry began extending its borders by initiating a partnership with three government hospitals specializing in infectious diseases. Eighteen months later an agreement had been forged involving the collaborative efforts of medical specialists and child welfare advocates from PJM, the Philippine Department of Health and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) Our goal is to provide optimum quality care for children affected by HIV and AIDS in the Philippines.

The Crossing Borders project integrates the treatment and monitoring of children, training of family members and health care workers and networking with local community resources. PJM provides ongoing leadership as the lead agency and project manager.

"The challenge in crossing borders will be to work and learn together as well as share resources and experiences to help create a world fit for children."
