Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1995
This description of Ruben Ernesto Alfonso Rosas's work was prepared when Ruben Ernesto Alfonso Rosas was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1995.
Ernesto Rosas is transforming an inward-looking mutual aid society of HIV-positive Uruguayans into a dynamic advocacy, information and AIDS care center. In so doing, he aims to "return to society its responsibilities" by encouraging Uruguayans to view HIV-positive/AIDS as but one of many chronic illnesses that must be treated and understood.
