The Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force is dedicated to saving, sustaining, and empowering the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS and preventing the spread of infections.
Through compassionate and caring work we respond to the disease in all its diversity by:
providing seamless, integrated services to individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS, including direct services, housing, referrals, and advocacy;
delivering innovative, targeted outreach and education programs to those at risk of infection;
taking leadership in collaborating with other organizations to achieve mutual goals.
In the tradition of PATF's caring founders, we will continue to employ these ethics and values: Compassion, Confidentiality, Courtesy, Dignity, Excellence, Integrity, Respect for Diversity
