Mission Statement

APLA Health’s mission is to achieve health care equity and promote well-being for the LGBT and other underserved communities and people living with and affected by HIV.

Description

In October 1982, the four founders of AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA)-Nancy Cole Sawaya, Matt Redman, Ervin Munro, and Max Drew-attended an emergency meeting at the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Community Services Center. The meeting featured a presentation by a representative from San Francisco’s Kaposi’s Sarcoma Foundation about Gay Related Immunodeficiency Disease (GRID), one of the early names for AIDS.

With the unveiling of the new APLA Health logo in July 2016, we take our next step toward achieving health care equity and promoting well-being for the LGBT and other underserved communities and people in Los Angeles County living with and affected by HIV.
