AHF Successfully Advocates for Ouster of UNAIDS Chief
Always fighting for what’s right, AIDS Healthcare Foundation successfully advocated for the removal of UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé, who resigned amid charges of mishandling sexual harassment cases and abuse of power. In late 2018, AHF pressed for the release of a special report that found Sidibé had created a disturbing work culture that tolerated sexual harassment and abuse of authority. “Sunshine is the best disinfectant, and UNAIDS needs to be disinfected from a culture that encourages sex abuse and the promotion of predators,” said Michael Weinstein, president of AIDS Healthcare Foundation. “This cover-up has lasted long enough.” The report, and AHF’s advocacy, ultimately forced the UNAIDS chief out of his job.
AHF Reaches Major ‘Test and Treat’ Milestone in Europe
In addition to operating in the United States, Asia, Africa, and Latin America, AHF reached a major milestone in Europe, serving 50,000 patients and performing more than one million HIV tests. AHF operates in Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Lithuania, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom, bringing the organization’s “test-and-treat” model to Europe. That cutting-edge program, which AHF has utilized for a decade, helps people living with HIV get into drug treatment quickly. Test and treat not only saves lives, but slows the global spread of the virus. For years, AHF has done invaluable work in Russia and Ukraine.
AHF Launches Healthy Housing Foundation
Returning to its roots as a housing provider in a time of emergency, AIDS Healthcare Foundation launches Healthy Housing Foundation to urgently address California’s housing affordability and homeless crises, which are impacting AHF patients. Healthy Housing Foundation repurposes old hotels and other properties to create low-income housing for the most vulnerable. The first project was the Madison Hotel in Downtown L.A. In addition, AHF starts a housing advocacy division, Housing Is A Human Right.
AHF Reaches 1 Million Patients Served
Fulfilling its promise to serve 1 million HIV/AIDS patients by 2020, AIDS Healthcare Foundation reaches that major milestone in October 2018 — more than a year ahead of schedule. In 2019, AHF serves 1.1 million patients in 43 counties, including the United States, Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa, India, Cambodia, China, and Russia. AHF continues to provide “cutting-edge medicine and advocacy regardless of ability to pay.”
