Mission Statement

Founded in 1983, AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts, Inc. (AAC), is New England's first and largest AIDS service organization. AAC provides services for men, women and children living with AIDS and HIV; educates the public and health professionals about how to prevent HIV transmission in accordance with harm reduction principles; and advocates for fair and effective AIDS policy at the city, state and federal levels. AAC also provides targeted outreach to those most vulnerable to HIV infection including men who have sex with men, injection drug users, black women, transgender women, and homeless youth. In 2010, AAC merged with Cambridge Cares About AIDS to more efficiently deliver AIDS services in the Greater Boston area and expand its capacity for social justice work aimed at reducing the disparities among those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. AAC runs the only statewide AIDS/STD Hotline (1-800-235-2331) and Hepatitis Hotline (1-888-443-4372). All Hotlines offer multilingual support. Free and confidential rapid HIV testing and counseling, and clean needle exchange are also available. Learn more at www.aac.org.
