 About Us
ACTION FOR AIDS (AFA) IS SINGAPORE’S LEADING INDEPENDENT ORGANISATION OF HIV EXPERTS

AFA is a non-governmental organisation dedicated to fighting AIDS/HIV infection in Singapore. It draws upon a network of healthcare professionals, advocates, educators and volunteers, to implement educational, testing, treatment and welfare programmes.


Mission
The organisation focuses on its AIDS commitment through the promotion of prevention, education and advocating for and providing care to benefit the welfare of persons living with HIV/AIDS.

To mark our 25th year, we have adopted the tagline “Doing It Better” to help us achieve our goals of zero new infections, zero deaths due to HIV/AIDS related illnesses and zero discrimination and stigma.

We are committed to work together to
•Prevent HIV transmission through promotion of behavioural and biomedical strategies;
•Reducing the impact of HIV/AIDS on individuals by working towards universal access to treatment and care;
•Advocate for implementation of policies and programmes that will reduce HIV-related stigma and discrimination in Singapore.


Doing It Better
Formed in 1988, the organisation has evolved its functions and objectives – from the promotion of basic public awareness of HIV/AIDS and starting up support and assistance for persons living with HIV infection, to its present day role that requires greater coordination and collaboration, delivering complex prevention and care programmes in a globalised and connected society.

Together with your support, we are doing it better!


What We Do
We are the community’s only HIV/AIDS agency, Singapore’s only charity dedicated to fighting HIV/AIDS, with approved charity tax-exemption status since 2004. AFA’s aim is to maintain and strengthen our daily programme delivery and extend care and support to individuals and families who are affected by HIV/AIDS.


Educate
An important pillar of our mission, these programmes help raise awareness of HIV/AIDS through direct and provocative outreach activities to communities at risk. Changing of behaviour is only possible through integrative programming and support by venue owners, volunteers and coordinators.


Support & Care
Anonymous HIV-testing enables early detection and treatment. Financial assistance provides help for those in need. Support groups and counselling help infected and affected individuals cope with HIV infection and close the gap between diagnosis and care.


Advocate
Since its inception, AFA has been a visible advocate for the fair treatment of Persons Living with HIV/AIDS. Today, we continue our efforts to seek access to affordable treatment for all PLHIV, and sit on the National HIV/ADS committee as a CSO (Civil Society Organisation) representative.
