We are excited to announce a new partnership between AIDS Alliance for Children, Youth & Families and The AIDS Institute. Beginning this summer, the new home of AIDS Alliance is with The AIDS Institute under the leadership of Michael Ruppal, Executive Director of The AIDS Institute.  AIDS Alliance, founded in 1994, will continue and expand its advocacy and program work in its new home. Carole Treston will be working with The AIDS Institute over the coming months to ensure continuity of advocacy and program services.  Combining administrative operations will maximize and increase the resources dedicated to programs and services.  Together, these two historic organizations will forge a new alliance that will have an even greater impact in the fight against HIV/AIDS, and will also maximize organizational effectiveness and efficiency for women, infants, children and youth, as well as our donors and funders.


The AIDS Institute, founded in 1992, is committed to continuing the legacy of AIDS Alliance.  Together we have a lot of work to do towards achieving the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy for women, children, youth and families living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. The synergy between the two national organizations will make for a successful future as we blend the expertise of the leadership shared between the two groups.  AIDS Alliance will continue its vision, values and identity in its new home.  The AIDS Institute will ensure that the work and programming of AIDS Alliance, along with its own programs, will appropriately support our respective missions.


We will continue to keep you updated about this important and exciting partnership. Working together we can better contribute to changing the course of the epidemic.
