Mission & Overview

Mission & Overview

Our mission is to eliminate the spread and stigma of HIV/AIDS, improve the lives of those living with HIV/AIDS, and promote community health through comprehensive and culturally-sensitive services, education programs, and advocacy.

AIDS Delaware is the state’s first and largest AIDS Service Organization (ASO). The agency was founded in 1984 by a group of concerned volunteer activists addressing the needs of the state’s emerging AIDS community. Over the last 38 years, AIDS Delaware has become Delaware’s premier ASO working for the health of the human family.

We are the first nonprofit ASO in Delaware to initiate and practice Trauma-Informed Care and organizational development for the benefit of clients, staff, and the community.

Our services include free, confidential HIV testing; medical case management statewide for persons living with HIV; education/outreach programs; pharmacy services; food and personal products pantry; and mental health counseling.
