Our Love Program Manager, STOP AIDS Project

STOP AIDS Project works to prevent the spread of HIV among gay, bisexual and transgender men in San Francisco through multicultural and collaborative community-based organizing.

Since its inception in 1984, STOP AIDS Project has been locally and internationally recognized as a successful model of progressive grassroots HIV prevention and peer-to-peer education. We continually update our programs and stay at the cutting-edge of effective HIV prevention by recognizing and addressing the community’s evolving relationship with the constantly changing epidemic. Educating the community about HIV is at the foundation of STOP AIDS’ mission; we believe that it is only as an educated community that we have the capacity to make the best choices for our collective health and well-being.

We do this by providing street outreach, forums/workshops, community-building activities, structural interventions, public policy advocacy, referral services, condoms, public education campaigns and support/education for HIV+ men.
