HISTORIA

ASPAT is a non-profit organization, without political or religious purposes, constituted with the aim of improving the quality of life for persons affected by Tuberculosis (PATs). 

 

Our efforts are centered on health and human development issues related to Tuberculosis (TB), HIV / AIDS, and other communicable and non-communicable diseases.


ASPAT was founded in 2007, thanks to the enthusiasm and determination of two persons affected by tuberculosis of Lima and Callao, our Executive Director Melecio Mayta and Juan León Palomino. They met to share their experiences and to discuss how they could help other members of their community who suffer from the same disease; what began with a couple of dedicated volunteers accomplishing some activities from a narrow office, flipcharts and markers turned into a movement stimulated by more than 50 committed volunteers undertaken to provide the tools and necessary resources to those affected in order to fight against tuberculosis.

 

ASPAT is recognized by the Government as a strategic partner in the fight against the tuberculosis, and since then, has associated with national and international organizations, including the National Strategy for Tuberculosis Prevention and Control (ESNPC-TB), Local Governments, Regional Governments, Pontifical University of Peru (PUCP), National University of San Marcos (Faculty of Medical Sciences), the University of Chicago (USA), and Adra Perú, among others.
