AHF Board Celebrates Successful Annual Retreat in Chicago

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 2 novembre 2019

The Board of Directors for AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the largest global AIDS organization, successfully concluded its annual retreat last week in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood for the $1.6 billion nonprofit organization, which currently cares for over 1.3 million people living with HIV or AIDS in 43 countries around the world.The AHF Board then also joined with senior AHF leadership, local and Illinois state elected officials and others to celebrate and cut the ribbon in Humboldt Park for a new, state-of-the-art facility and offices of CALOR, an affiliate of AHF and respected local Chicago nonprofit AIDS group that has been addressing the HIV/AIDS crisis facing the Latinx community in Chicago for nearly 30 years. The Board also toured AHF’s Chicago Out of the Closet store; another AHF affiliate organization, the South Side Help Center; as well as the Hyde Park AHF Healthcare Center.There are approximately 23,000 HIV cases in Chicago and the Latinx community accounts for 18% of those cases. While the incidence of new infections has dropped in the white community and is now flat in the African American community, the Latinx community is the only group in which the numbers of new infections is on the rise.The sixteen-member AHF Board, including three members from Africa as well as several Latinx members, represent nearly 300 years of combined volunteer service to the global AIDS organization.
