About the Organization – Mission, Vision, and Scope
Founded in May of 1999, the Black AIDS Institute is the only national HIV/AIDS think tank in the U.S. focused exclusively on Black people. The Institute’s mission is to end the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Black communities by engaging and mobilizing leaders, institutions and individuals in efforts to confront HIV/AIDS on a local, state, regional, and national level. The Institute interprets public and private sector HIV/AIDS policies, conducts trainings, offers technical assistance, disseminates information, provides free testing for HIV and other STIs, offers linkage to both preventive and clinical care, and provides advocacy and mobilization from a uniquely and unapologetically Black point of view. Our motto describes a commitment to self-preservation: “Our People, Our Problem, Our Solution.”
