‘Keeping the Promise: AHF 30 Years’

 Celebrations, and film screenings to mark AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s 30th Anniversary in 2017.

 

AHF, the largest global AIDS organization - which now provides HIV/AIDS care and services, including antiretroviral treatment, to more than 821,000 people in 38 countries - will mark its anniversary throughout the end of 2017 with global events, including screenings of the film, Keeping the Promise: AHF 30 Years.

 

As part of its 30th anniversary and to commemorate World AIDS Day on December 1, AHF will hold a series of global events and activities, including screenings of the new one-hour documentary, Keeping the Promise: AHF 30 Years, throughout the remainder of 2017. Keeping the Promise: AHF 30 Years tells a compelling story of AHF’s history through archival video footage and interviews with key AHF stakeholders from over the years and offers a glimpse of the road map to its future. Keeping the Promise: AHF 30 Years was made by Foxhound Productions and will also be subtitled in at least nine (9) additional languages: Spanish, French, Chinese, Portuguese, Nepali, Khmer, Russian, Ukrainian and Hindi, languages spoken in many of the countries and regions where AHF currently operates and provides care and services.

Founded in 1987 first as the AIDS Hospice Committee and later the AIDS Hospice Foundation, AHF’s earliest days were a heartfelt, grassroots community effort to provide end-of-life hospice care to people with AIDS in Los Angeles, California at a time in the mid-1980s before lifesaving drug treatment was available for people with HIV/AIDS. Thirty years later, AHF has now grown to become the largest global AIDS organization.

“On this occasion of the 30th anniversary of the founding of AHF, I want to thank our board of directors, our staff of 5,600, our 821,000 patients and the community of supporters we have around the country and the world. Everything we have accomplished is because of your dedication. AHF stands as living proof that the world can be changed for the better if you are willing to work hard and dedicate yourself to a mission,” said Michael Weinstein, AHF’s President and founder.  “I really wish that Chris Brownlie, my dear friend and co-founder of AHF, could be alive today to see what his voice inspired. While we celebrate this milestone, we recognize that there is still so much more work to be done before we defeat AIDS once and for all time.”

“Congratulations to all of the AHF staff, Board members, volunteers, partners and our patients for contributing your best to help AHF meet this remarkable thirty-year milestone with over 821,000 patients now in AHF’s care somewhere in the world,” said Cynthia Davis, MPH, Assistant Professor, College of Medicine, Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science and Chair of AHF’s Board of Directors. “On behalf of the Board, we are honored and proud of the work done—and to work alongside you—in the fight against AIDS each day. Members of the Board also look forward to celebrating this milestone with many of you at these events, celebrations and film screenings at AHF locations around the corner and around the globe, as well as during our upcoming ‘Keep the Promise’ World AIDS Day concerts and community events. Again, heartfelt congratulations and thanks to all those involved in this remarkable AHF accomplishment.”

 

Through AHF’s Public Health Division, AHF operates one of the largest community-based free HIV testing programs in the US (176,950 free tests in the US in 2016).  In addition, nearly five million free HIV tests were done globally by AHF in 2016 (4,876,600 tests).

Today, in addition to its clinics and treatment centers, AHF’s Research Division has nearly 23 years of experience with antiretroviral (ARV) studies and the organization currently operates a chain of 46 AHF Pharmacy outlets in 11 states; 21 Wellness Centers in eight states (and four additional Wellness Centers in two other countries); the award-winning chain of ‘Out of the Closet’ thrift stores with 21 outlets in seven U.S. states (many of which provide free HIV testing); and two AHF Dental Clinics in South Florida and Southern California.  AHF also runs managed care and disease management programs for people with AIDS or HIV in Florida and California under AHF’s Positive Healthcare umbrella.
