Mission Statement

BEBASHI was founded in 1985 in response to the increasing incidence of HIV/AIDS in the African American community of Philadelphia. We are a full-service HIV/AIDS case management agency with a special interest in serving low-income people of color with HIV disease. Our mission is to provide culturally sensitive health related information, direct service, research, and technical assistance to the urban community.

Description

Our programs are designed to meet the needs of the underserved community and our educational efforts focus on street outreach to areas of the community most in need of prevention information and direct care services to those who are least likely to receive it. In 2004 we provided services to 15,000 Philadelphians and over 600,000 individuals since 1985!

Would you recommend Bebashi: Transition to Hope?

by Jerome W. (April 11, 2011)
Bebashi's mission statement is extremely important and has life saving qualities. Culturally sensitive services can make the difference between life and death for minorities affected by HIV/AIDS, particularly those that can benefit from HAART regimens. HAART candidates must keep their appointments in order for the therapy to work. If the recipient feels uncomfortable with the care provider, the likelihood of the person returning diminishes, thereby jeopardizing the chance to live a meaningful and productive life and eventually dying. Jerome F. Williams, Sr., MBA
