Since 1985, the AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC) has made a difference in the lives of people living with HIV and AIDS in Chicago and across Illinois.

Those efforts have been made possible by people like you, who are committed to serving the HIV/AIDS community in Illinois and able to contribute financially to the cause.

  • AFC provides case management services to more than 5,000 people each year.
  • 81% of AFC's Case Management clients were virally suppressed ("undetectable") in 2014, meaning their HIV level is low enough to nearly end the possibility of passing the virus on to others.
  • In 2014, over 5,000 people were screened for HIV through AFC's innovative and cost-free outreach initiatives.
  • Almost 400 professionals were trained to be advocates for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) last year through AFC's Project RSP!
  • AFC provided 3,492 people with health insurance education and enrollment assistance for the Illinois health insurance marketplace.
