is an affiliate of Los Angeles based AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the largest global AIDS organization which provides HIV/AIDS Care and services including Anti-Retroviral Treatment. AHF opened the first clinic in Masaka in 2002 in close partnership with the Ugandan Ministry of Health, offering the first opportunity for Anti-Retroviral Treatment outside the Capital City of Kampala. Today, AHF Uganda Cares serves more than 100,000 clients- making it one of the country’s largest providers of free HIV/AIDS services.
The Los Angeles-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is a global nonprofit organization providing cutting-edge medicine and advocacy to 1.7 million people in 45 countries; Africa, North and South America, Asia and Europe. We are currently the largest provider of HIV/AIDS medical care in the U.S.
AHF funds its mission to rid the world of AIDS through a network of pharmacies, thrift stores, healthcare contracts and other strategic partnerships. Generating new, innovative ways of treatment, prevention and advocacy have been the hallmark of our success. We are currently leading a mass testing initiative to identify and treat the 25 million people who are unaware they are infected.
By advocating big goals–such as having 1 billion people tested each year–AHF hopes to eliminate older, more time-consuming methods. Since 1987, AHF has cared for thousands of people living with HIV and AIDS worldwide. As we create and implement new programs in communities across the U.S. and abroad, we expand delivery of healthcare and influence over policy with the aim of saving more lives.
