The AIDS Alliance for Women, Infants, Children, Youth & Families was established in 1994 to respond to the unique needs of women, infants, children, youth and families living with and affected by HIV and AIDS. In 2012 we merged with The AIDS Institute, a national non-profit organization. Though now a program of The AIDS Institute, the AIDS Alliance maintains its unique brand and identify.
- Creates and shares information about programs that work for women, infants, children, youth and families living with and affected by HIV and AIDS
- Provides a forum for consumers and care providers to build more effective partnerships
- Advocates for public policies that benefit women, infants, children, youth and families living with and affected by HIV and AIDS while preventing new HIV infections and searching for a real cure.
AIDS Alliance partners are the health care providers, researchers, administrators and consumers living with HIV and AIDS, including HIV positive youth, of the Ryan White Part D funded programs who were also our founding members. We work through strong collaborative relationships with other national groups, as well as close partnerships with our constituents in local communities across the country in over 650 care, research, and prevention programs for women, infants, children, youth and families.
Empowering Women, Youth & Families
Empowering women, youth, and families living with HIV/AIDS is the focus of AIDS Alliance. Through our partnerships with Part D providers across the country, we respond to the expressed need of women and families for information and support that help them care for their families and themselves and work for better care and services in their communities.
Supporting Care Providers
The AIDS Alliance is committed to supporting individuals and organizations that care for women, infants, children, youth, and families living with HIV/AIDS across the United States and in Puerto Rico through our national conference, VOICES and by providing training and technical assistance through links to various resource sites.
Strong, Effective Advocacy
No family or community can fight AIDS alone. Public policy is essential to the ability of families, care providers, and communities to care for women, infants, children, youth, and families living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. AIDS Alliance provides strong, effective advocacy in Washington to ensure that the voices of women, infants, children, youth and families living with and affected by HIV and AIDS are heard in the public policy debate on HIV and AIDS.
A major focus of our advocacy is expanding meaningful access to HIV/AIDS care, support, and prevention for women, infants, children, youth, and families affected by HIV and AIDS, with a particular emphasis on those who are not receiving care. This advocacy supports our program efforts in working to get these underserved populations into care and help them stay in care.
