World AIDS Day 2014
(25 November 2014)

Since we first started working in the early 1980 fighting AIDS a lot has changed in the last 30 years. ICROSS worked a time when there was a lot of denial and fear hatred and ignorance. We have moved beyond the lack of knowledge and great changes have been made in changing the stigma and fear. For organisations like ICROSS every day is AIDS day just as every day is malaria day or tuberculosis day. The people we serve are not a disease or a patient, a child orphaned because of AIDS is still a member of a community.

Welcome, thank you for coming to our web site.

ICROSS began its activities in 1978. We aim at providing long-term assistance to the nomadic communities of the sub-Saharan region. We act as a catalyst and all our projects are run and owned by the communities we serve. We work to improve health and living standards using their own culture. We work within a five-year strategic plan. This was developed with the Ministry of Health in Kenya and sets out long term goals.

Remember, you have the power to change tomorrow.

Dr. Michael Elmore Meegan - Founder and International Director ICROSS.
