AHF (AIDS HEALTHCARE FOUNDATION) 700 SE 3rd Ave, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316 https://www.aidshealth.org/ (954) 767-0273
the Los Angeles-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is a global nonprofit organization providing cutting-edge medicine and advocacy to over 1,000,000 people in 43 countries. We are currently the largest provider of HIV/AIDS medical care in the U.S.
AHF funds its mission to rid the world of AIDS through a network of pharmacies, thrift stores, healthcare contracts, and other strategic partnerships. Generating new, innovative ways of treatment, prevention and advocacy have been the hallmark of our success. We are currently leading a mass testing initiative to identify and treat the 25 million people who are unaware they are infected.
By advocating big goals–such as having 1 billion people tested each year–AHF hopes to eliminate older, more time-consuming methods. Since 1987, AHF has cared for thousands of people living with HIV and AIDS worldwide. As we create and implement new programs in communities across the U.S. and abroad, we expand the delivery of healthcare and influence over policy with the aim of saving more lives.

Our goals are simple: to support the health and stability of each individual who walks through our door with a plan unique to their goals.
The agency embraces a responsibility to be a leader in the community. This leadership is actualized through prevention, education, and service in order to reduce the number of individuals becoming infected by HIV, increasing the number of individuals living with HIV receiving care, and reducing stigma in our community. While Broward House began its mission by providing housing, and it remains a core component of services, it is realized that individuals require an array of support services for true healing to occur. It is this philosophy that has led to the expansion to a full array of support, behavioral health, prevention, and health care services.
