HIV/AIDS activist Esther Boucicault Stanislas established Fondation Esther Boucicault Stanislas (F.E.B.S.) to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and provide medical and psychological aid to those carrying the virus. F.E.B.S. is a pioneering, peer-driven system of delivering medications to people in rural areas and is now collaboration with the internationally renowned Partners in Health.
Accompanied by health professionals, she tours Haitian towns giving information and advice to young people. Boucicault’s experience as a woman who so publicly disclosed her status has informed her work with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in Haiti.
