AIDS Action & HIV/AIDS
AIDS Walk & Run Boston benefits AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts, the leading provider of prevention and wellness services for people living with HIV/AIDS or at risk of contracting HIV/AIDS in Massachusetts.
Many of the people who seek services at AIDS Action have more pressing, immediate priorities than managing their HIV status, including homelessness, malnutrition, substance abuse, or domestic violence. That is why, in addition to HIV counseling and testing, AIDS Action provides services in mental health counseling, housing assistance, and legal support. AIDS Action also operates the second largest needle exchange program in the state, helping to get used needles off the streets and reverse hundreds of potentially fatal overdoses a year through our opioid overdose prevention trainings and distribution of Narcan.
Today, we have the tools to support those living with HIV/AIDS and to stop the epidemic. Learn how together, we can get to zero: zero new infections, zero stigma, and zero new deaths from HIV/AIDS.
