TeachAIDS: Used in 70+ countries, with 250+ distribution partners, TeachAIDS provides award-winning, research-based, culturally-appropriate HIV prevention materials for free.

Spun out of Stanford University in 2009, TeachAIDS is a 501(c)(3) social venture that creates breakthrough software to solve persistent problems in HIV prevention around the world. TeachAIDS is dedicated to addressing the challenges associated with providing health education through the creation of research-based, culturally-appropriate learning materials, harnessing world-class medical and educational expertise and utilizing technology to disseminate HIV and AIDS materials around the world to those who need them most – for free. The TeachAIDS software is used by organizations ranging from governments, which educate their health care workers, to institutions, which teach students and educators, to corporations, which educate their employees on safe practices, to NGOs, which train their trainers to work in rural and urban communities.

Used in 70+ countries, with 250+ distribution partners, TeachAIDS provides the most effective HIV education for free under a Creative Commons License. TeachAIDS was recognized as an innovation that would “change the world” by MIT Technology Review in 2011 and was a winner of the Microsoft Education Award at The Tech Awards in 2012.
