Q: How does STIMMA determine where the next trip is headed?
A: There is a lot of research that goes into each trip. We look at information such as how many people in surrounding communities, access to a clinic/hospital, mortality and morbidity rates. Safety of trip participants is important so we make sure that there is no political tension or unrest. Environmental factors are also considered.
Q: I cannot go on a trip but i would like to help – what can I do?
A: There are many ways to help. Collecting product donations, organizing an event, or attending some of the events that are supporting stimma. For a complete list of upcoming events please see upcoming events on the home page.
Q: I am not a health care provider – what role can I play ?
A: You do not need to be a doctor or nurse to participate. Patient registration, crowd control, clinic runner, translator, facilitating education seminars (tools provided) or playing with the community children are all important jobs that contribute to the success of a clinic.
Q: Where does stimma get their funds from?
A: All participants pay their way to the clinic site. Additional funds for supplies are donated by communities. Additional costs incurred are paid by monies raised at fundraising events.
