Saving the lives of our youth is our highest priority. Through education, information, advocacy, testing and enter-agency collaborative efforts, our mission is to reverse the alarming trend of new HIV infections in our community and to encourage proper life management for those currently positive with HIV/AIDS.
The mission of the Akron AIDS Collaborative is to broaden the network of caring organizations in communities of color to influence social norms that contribute to the prevention of HIV/AIDS, and to increase advocacy for social services for people of color who are living with HIV/AIDS, and to those who have suffered from sexual orientation stigma within the African American community.
