Be An Advocate
HIV and AIDS services exist because people infected and affected by the disease stood up for themselves and the people they love. ActionAIDS was founded in 1986 by a group of brave volunteers who wanted to make a difference. That power still exists today and we encourage you top know your rights and take action!
