AFC brings together service providers and funders to develop systems that meet the needs of those living with HIV/AIDS and to maximize the use of scarce resources. AFC manages more than $17 million in local, state, and federal funds for an array of AIDS-related services. By assisting government entities in planning, distributing, and monitoring service contracts, AFC helps develop provider expertise and promotes uniform and high-quality delivery across the region.
Until there is a vaccine and a cure, comprehensive HIV prevention services remain our best weapon in the fight against HIV/AIDS. The AIDS Foundation of Chicago is committed to working with policymakers and service providers to increase funding for prevention services and programs that work.
Policy initiatives spearheaded by the AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC) work to improve services for, and protect the rights of, people living with and vulnerable to HIV. Through partnerships with the HIV/AIDS community, local service providers, and statewide and national partners, AFC works to achieve legislative support for the 45,000 people living with HIV and AIDS in Illinois.
