AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts

The AIDS Action Committee takes a comprehensive approach to HIV prevention and care. Since 1999, AIDS Action has helped reduce new HIV diagnoses in Massachusetts by 54%, which has meant that over 5,000 people who might have otherwise become HIV positive have remained negative, and more than $2 billion in health care costs will be saved as a result. AIDS Action conducts outreach and education to communities and populations most affected by HIV in the metro Boston and Lynn areas through one-on-one education sessions, street outreach, and peer-based training models
