WHO WE ARE
AHF AROUND THE WORLD
Founded in 1987, it is currently the largest global provider of healthcare against HIV/AIDS.
AHF joins the mission set forth by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), to promote the efforts of civil society, governments, and private entities with the goal of eradicating HIV/AIDS from the world by 2030.
AHF funds its operations through a network of pharmacies in the United States, thrift stores, healthcare contracts, and other strategic partnerships, through which it generates its own resources to allocate them to the response to HIV/AIDS in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia, and Europe.
This allows for over 5 million rapid HIV tests to be conducted globally each year, the distribution of over 90 million free condoms, and the fight to eliminate social stigma and preserve the rights of individuals living with the virus worldwide.
We are currently leading an initiative for mass rapid testing to identify and treat the 25 million people who are unaware they live with the virus across four continents.

AHF has served 1,825,000 individuals
living with HIV/AIDS, and as we grow and implement new programs in communities across diverse territories such as Ukraine, Kenya, Thailand, Russia, Panama, Vietnam, and India. Additionally, operating over 800 healthcare service centers worldwide.
AHF runs an extensive public health advocacy program aiming to collaborate with governments to guide public policies, with the objective to prevent HIV transmission, timely diagnose seropositive individuals, and ensure they receive timely treatment, thereby saving more lives.
AHF IN LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN
AHF in Latin America
AHF expanded its services to Latin America in 2007, starting in Mexico. It currently runs programs in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Haiti, Jamaica, Mexico, Peru, and Panama. Our goal is for an increasing number of people to know their HIV status and other sexually transmitted infections, in order to connect them with local health services. We strive for them to receive medications on time and medical care that allows them to preserve their health and that of their loved ones, reducing transmission rates, in a model that prioritizes the confidentiality of our patients.
AHF also works for the respect of human rights and non-discrimination, and to assist the governments of countries in organizing their efforts to eradicate the epidemic. It offers advocacy services to vulnerable groups to ensure their access to quality medical care and medications, regardless of their ability to pay, which is its global mission.
