Minority AIDS Projects

Minority AIDS Project (MAP) originated in 1985 and is the first community based HIV/AIDS organization established and managed by people of color in the United States. MAP is a California nonprofit organization that provides free of charge educational and other HIV/AIDS related support services to eligible individuals without regard to age, gender, ethnicity, culture, language or other circumstances. MAP’s services and educational programs are community-wide and available to all people. However, from the beginning, the primary focus of their services and outreach has been the African-American and Latino communities in Central and South Central Los Angeles.
Minority AIDS Project’s goal is to ensure community based access to respectful and efficient health promotion and disease prevention services through the provision of critical support that works to bridge the gap of services for our multi-ethnic clients. Minority AIDS Project it dedicated to “reducing suffering and deaths due to HIV Infection and AIDS Disease in African American and Latino communities by making HIV/AIDS education and related health services available and accessible.” Until the doors opened at MAP, these communities had little or no real access to preventive education and essential health care services. .
