In New York City, AID FOR AIDS conducts community outreach in partnership with governmental and non-governmental entities. We work to connect Latino communities to comprehensive healthcare with a focus on HIV prevention and care.
For three years, AID FOR AIDS has received a grant from the New York City Council under the Ending the Epidemic Initiative. This has allowed us to conduct more than 100 HIV tests since January 2019. Our work in providing prevention education and testing is aligned with Governor Cuomo’s plan to the end of the AIDS epidemic in New York State by 2020, and we are proud to be a part of a broad-based effort that is resulting in decreased HIV diagnoses annually.
In partnership with Mixteca Organization, AID FOR AIDS serves the Brooklyn community on Tuesdays from 3:00PM to 6:00PM at 245 23rd St #2, Brooklyn, NY 11215.
AFA also serves the Mexican community every first and fourth Thursday of the month from 9:00AM to 12:00PM at the Mexican Consulate located at 27 E 39th St, New York, NY 10016.
At these locations, AID FOR AIDS provides HIV testing and empowerment workshops for community members.
