Our work

HIV, STI and HCV testing

AFC provides prevention education, testing, training and program coordination to community-based organizations. The prevention program strives to effect positive change in our communities by working in collaboration with local community-based organizations and care providers to provide routine, streamlined and episodic HIV and sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and linkage to care. 

By strengthening and expanding collaborative program efforts, technical assistance and funding to community-based organizations, the prevention program aims to improve the capacity of local service providers to perform effective and appropriate HIV/AIDS prevention activities for outreach to highly vulnerable populations.

MSM Testing Initiative

The MSM Testing Initiative (MTI) focuses HIV testing efforts on gay and bisexual men from all communities and ethnicities. The program reaches men through social venues including bars, events, parks and more, and is designed to link them to care.
