American International AIDS Foundation, publisher of AidsFactSheet.com, who is committed to providing timely, accurate and easy to understand information about AIDS/HIV to our global audience. We believe that our mission of Sharing Hope and Providing Knowledge will promote better awareness of this disease and its prevention.

AIDS is a great plague upon all humanity that has already claimed the lives of more than 23 million men, women and children worldwide. With an estimated 38 million people throughout the globe currently living with HIV all current predictions tell us that this is just the beginning of this epidemic!

AIDS and HIV do not discriminate. It is devastating to people of all ages, genders, races, religions and nationalities regardless if you're gay, straight, a drug user or not. It can reach you in the most innocent of ways and that's what makes it so dangerous. While there is no cure at this time (only treatment) for the AIDS virus, it can be prevented through education, awareness and precautionary methods, including HIV home testing kits offered through AidsFactSheet.com.

American International AIDS Foundation is a Non-Profit organization dedicated to promoting a better understanding of the disease through publication of the AidsFactSheet.com website as well as working with, and on behalf of, other AIDS organizations to spread our message of "Sharing Hope and Providing Knowledge". AidsFactSheet.com will contain vital information about AIDS and HIV and will also have other unique features and resources that are updated regularly and will not be found anywhere else. Since we are a Non Profit educational foundation, we rely on your participation and support.  We ask that you take the time to consider a small financial contribution (support AidsFactSheet.com) to our efforts and/or patronize our advertisers, sponsors and especially our shopping partners in the Shop our Supporters area. These are companies who have made the commitment to support this very important cause by contributing a small amount of every dollar spent.

We encourage you to explore our regularly updated site and let us know what you think. Your thoughts, suggestions and opinions are important to us so please feel free to contact us.
