Dr. Koen Van Rompay founded Sahaya International (Davis-based 501(3) nonprofit organization), a diverse network of friends and research scientists committed to making a difference towards improving the quality of life in third world countries. Around the world, families have been given correct information on HIV/AIDS and have gained access to life-saving HIV treatments. This includes tablets containing tenofovir, which is now being used increasingly in developing countries. This successful drug is a direct result of the preclinical research performed on tenofovir in nonhuman primates at CNPRC. Thanks to this treatment, individuals have seen a dramatic improvement in their health; they are able to resume work, and their children can lead normal lives, including attending school thanks to the support of Sahaya.
