The African American Coalition Against AIDS was founded in 2002 for the explicit purpose of filling a void in the landscape of organizations engaged in HIV/AIDS work. 

~ The spread of AIDS among blacks and Latinos is a "public health emergency... The complexion of the epidemic has changed. Increasingly it is becoming an epidemic of color." -- Dr. David Satcher, Former U.S. Surgeon General ~

Summer Outreach of AACAA

The AACAA was successful in distributing over 50,000 condoms this summer! Summer Events included: the MLK Concert Series, Uptown Health Link Health Fairs, Wellness Day by the HCC,  the Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health and Brooklyn Health Disparities Program Internship Program, Betty Shabazz Health Fair, the Mayoral Forum by the GMHC, Sweet Spot Festival, health fairs, church fairs, and street outreach efforts. The AACAA is committed to the fight against HIV/AIDS in all communities. The AACAA would like to thank all of the organizations that included the AACAA in their work and who also worked tirelessly throughout the summer to educate communities, provide health screenings, and provide resources for New York City residents. The health fairs were both informative and fun. We look forward to more work and collaborations!
