Ashoka Fellow
This description of Irma Rosado's work was prepared when Irma Rosado was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1991.
As AIDS spreads in Mexico, Irma Rosado is developing the first complete program of care. Working initially in a four million person slum area, she is pioneering alternative work to provide income for those who have lost their jobs, day care for the seriously ill and, ultimately, hospices for the victims' final days of life.
