Can an NPO Help Fight AIDS?

Liz of The American Mystery Deepens writes:
I'm reading this book right now entitled "The End of Poverty" which is written by Jeffrey D. Sachs, an economic advisor to governments and the director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University.

One of the first sections in the book talk about the country Malawi in Africa - one of the most AIDS/HIV ravaged countries in the world. The CIA world fact book ranks Malawi as number 8, with 14.2% of the adult population living with AIDS or HIV.

Why not set up a NPO that provides people a mean to adopt an AIDS/HIV patient? We have programs that adopt impoverished children in Africa (albeit mainly run through crazy Christian missionary programs), so why not this? The way I see it is that we have two options - we can give up on an entire generation of individuals who could have otherwise so easily been saved - or we can help save them.
