JUSTRI is a not-for-profit organisation established to work with allies in the healthcare and patient communities, international agencies and the pharmaceutical industry to build successful responses to HIV and related conditions such as Hepatitis B & C. In collaboration with these allies we initiate and support projects and trainings, supply locally relevant resources, and facilitate international innovation in the provision of care for people living with these infections.
Or to put it less formally:
1. Do what they say isn’t useful – but you know is;
2. Do what crosses boundaries that are there – but needn’t be;
3. Do what they say won’t work – but you know almost certainly will.
JUSTRI is a small, but ever expanding, project and we are effective mainly because of the incredible support, participation and guidance we receive from our many supporters, trainers, funders. This truly is a community effort.
