AHF Healthcare Centers provide advanced medical care designed specifically for HIV-positive clients. Our AHF Services providers are knowledgeable of up-to-the-minute developments in HIV medical care. In addition, AHF Healthcare Centers are often part of the research teams testing new medications to fight HIV.
AHF’s path to becoming the largest provider of HIV/AIDS care in the U.S. began with a small group of dedicated activists in Los Angeles in the 1980s who had a simple humanitarian goal: give the people dying of AIDS a safe, dignified, and compassionate place to spend their final days. AIDS Hospice Foundation was officially established in June 1987, and the following year the group opened the Chris Brownlie Hospice, L.A.’s first licensed hospice for people suffering from AIDS. By July 1990, AHF realized that the need for specialized medical care was fortunately outpacing the need for AIDS hospice care, and the group changed its name to AIDS Healthcare Foundation as its focus shifted to providing cutting-edge medicine and advocacy, regardless of ability to pay.
As the largest AIDS organization in the world, AHF makes it our mission to give back. Through grants, emergency funds, and strategic partnerships, we’re able to provide millions of dollars worth of life-saving services, programs, and more.
