Latino Commission on AIDS
In response to the critical, unmet need for HIV prevention and care for Latinos, a coalition of Latino leaders founded the agency in 1990. The Commission realizes its mission by spearheading health advocacy for Latinos, promoting HIV education, developing model prevention programs for high-risk communities, and by building capacity in community organizations. Through its extensive network of partner organizations and community leaders, the Commission works to mobilize an effective community response to meet the health challenges and address the impact of HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis & STIs in communities nationwide. The Latino Commission on AIDS has proudly served the Latinx LGBTQ population and is committed in creating and promoting a safe space. The Commission is the founder of the Hispanic Health Network, dedicated to eradicate health disparities in our communities.
