In May of 2013, the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland became one of the first members of a new organizational experiment. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation, seeking to expand it’s world class HIV/AIDS-focused healthcare and pharmacy services, embarked on a search to partner with organizations across the country who had demonstrated a commitment and success in working with those living with or at highest risk for HIV. AHF had heard of an organization in Northeast Ohio that had been addressing the emerging HIV/AIDS epidemic since the very beginning.
Today, the AHF Federation is a consortium of AIDS Service Organizations (ASOs) and community groups committed to HIV/AIDS education, prevention, advocacy, medical treatment and support for underserved populations across the nation. Through the collective, organizations work to build upon their regional knowledge, experience and operations within AHF’s innovative network of support to expand their capacity to meet the growing needs of people in the communities they serve.
