This was the case for many Latinos who wanted an organization that could empower their community and at the same time promote advocacy, organization, and innovation for Latinos with HIV.

For 25 years, they have addressed the urgent need to develop a comprehensive response, not only for Latinos, but all communities affected by HIV and AIDS. They are responsible for the Latino AIDS Awareness Day, which takes place on October 15th, on the last day of Hispanic Heritage month to remind us to promote awareness and access to care to those that need it. They also work diligently to encourage people to get tested on National HIV Testing Day, which is June 27.
