We strive to help our communities in multiple ways
We provide funding to 14 local HIV/AIDS Service Agencies that deliver an array of essential services to people living with HIV, or at-risk for HIV. Services provided by these agencies include testing, treatment, prevention, substance use counseling, housing, harm reduction, behavioral health, and more. We fund each of our partner agencies equally so we can broadly support the entire HIV service community.
Our outreach and awareness campaigns through HIVAZ Connect engage the general public to promote HIV prevention and testing. Eliminating the stigma of HIV infection is a key goal of these campaigns to enable honest discussions about HIV risk and transmission.
