About AIDS Action

AIDS Action is New England’s largest provider of services to people living with HIV/AIDS and populations at risk of infection. AIDS Action leads the state’s Getting To Zero Coalition, which seeks to reduce the number of HIV infections to zero and operates a needle exchange that serves as an entry point to healthcare services for active substance users. In 2013, AIDS Action became a part of Fenway Health, which works to make life healthier for the people in our neighborhoods, the LGBTQIA+ community, people living with HIV/AIDS, and the broader population.

Our work – in conjunction with partners around the state – has given Massachusetts one of the best track records in tackling this epidemic.

Since 1999, Massachusetts has seen a 52% reduction in new HIV diagnoses. This has translated to at least 7,000 at-risk individuals remaining HIV-negative, and a statewide savings of more than $2.4 billion in HIV-related healthcare costs.

At AIDS Action, we go beyond the basics of providing safer sex kits and HIV medications by taking a comprehensive approach to HIV prevention and care. By working face-to-face with the people most impacted by HIV, we can truly understand their complex needs and how they impact their health. This information helps public officials and politicians make life-changing policy and funding decisions.

At present, we work directly with one-in-six people diagnosed with HIV in our state and provide prevention services to thousands more. Expanding on our successful model, we’re also taking the fight to infections and diseases related to HIV, such as Hepatitis C.

Our Mission: To stop the epidemic and related health inequities by eliminating new infections, maximizing healthier outcomes for those infected and at risk, and tackling the root causes of HIV/AIDS.
