Founded in 1991, ACRIA envisions a world where all people with HIV receive the treatment, care, and support they need to lead healthy, productive lives and where new transmissions of the virus have been eliminated. As pioneers of HIV research, prevention, and health education, created and funded by creative communities, we get lifesaving information to the people who need it the most.

ACRIA provides technical assistance and capacity building to community-based organizations across the US, serving people living with HIV and those at high risk for the disease.
Our Love Heals Center for Youth and Families provides life-changing HIV prevention, sexual health education, and leadership development that gives young people the tools they need to make healthy decisions.
Through our Robert Mapplethorpe Research Program, ACRIA is the global authority on HIV and aging. Our groundbreaking research has redefined the way we understand the disease.
