Ending the HIV Epidemic
As 2019 draws to a close, we review what's been accomplished and what's ahead in our efforts to End the HIV Epidemic in Houston and surrounding areas. We need your support in our work helping persons living with HIV and preventing new transmissions.
2019: A Giant Step Forward
We now have all the tools necessary to prevent new transmissions of HIV. Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP), Treatment as Prevention (TasP), and the knowledge that Undetectable=Untransmittable (U=U) are helping us make great strides in Ending the Epidemic.

Big Thanks to Hollyfield
AFH is deeply grateful to The Hollyfield Foundation for its 2019 grant in support of our Health & Wellness program. The funds helped us provide HIV testing, conduct prevention outreach to communities at risk, and link persons newly diagnosed to health care to keep them healthy and enable them to achieve viral suppression. Research has shown that persons living with HIV who achieve viral suppression cannot pass it on to others through sex. Through their grant, The Hollyfield Foundation is helping AFH End the Epidemic in Houston. Learn more...
