Mission Statement

The New Mexico Community AIDS Partnership (NMCAP) works to assure that the diverse populations of New Mexico receive high quality, culturally appropriate HIV prevention, education and care. We focus on innovative and collaborative programs, targeting otherwise underserved and vulnerable populations.

Recognizing that social and economic determinants strongly affect individuals’ and communities’ risk of HIV infection and their access to medical and support services, we join with others to address inequities in access to care and services and to increase social justice.

Description

NMCAP has served New Mexico’s diverse populations since 1993. While our focus on HIV/AIDS remains constant, the details of our work evolve constantly, in response to the changing needs of the pop. NMCAP works with partners around the state to identify and address gaps in HIV services. We provide funding and technical assistance to HIV-related programs throughout New Mexico through a competitive grant cycle. We host a team in the National AIDS Fund’s AmeriCorps program, placing 5-6 volunteers at local organizations each year to do HIV-related work in our most vulnerable communities. We undertake additional programs, as necessary.

NMCAP’s programs benefit People Living with HIV/AIDS, populations at high risk for HIV infection and the general population. We are currently involved in programs targeting Gay and Bisexual Hispanic men, Transgender individuals, Native Americans, Incarcerated and Homeless people, migrants living along the New Mexico/Mexico border and People Living with HIV/AIDS.

NMCAP has served New Mexico’s diverse populations since 1993. While our focus on HIV/AIDS remains constant, the details of our work evolve constantly, in response to the changing needs of the populations we serve. We are starting a supplementary food problem for People Living with HIV/AIDS because the financial crisis has increased the need. Our current prevention efforts focus on multi-agency initiatives to serve Gay and Bisexual Hispanic men and Native Americans.
