Description: Founded in May of 1999, the Black AIDS Institute is the only national HIV/AIDS think tank focused exclusively on Black people. The Institute's Mission is to stop the AIDS pandemic in Black communities by engaging and mobilizing Black institutions and individuals in efforts to confront HIV. The Institute interprets public and private sector HIV policies, conducts trainings, offers technical assistance, disseminates information and provides advocacy mobilization from a uniquely and unapologetically Black point of view.
Our motto describes a commitment to self-preservation: "Our People, Our Problem, Our Solution."
Our Guide to donating to HIV/AIDS awareness also provides readers with information about where their purchases can further support AIDS efforts. We provide a list of businesses where consumers can donate simply by making a purchase, like Amazon and Starbucks, so making a difference is as easy as enjoying a fresh cup of coffee.
