GMHC is the world's first and leading provider of HIV/AIDS prevention, care and advocacy. Building on decades of dedication and expertise, we understand the reality of HIV/AIDS and empower a healthy life for all.
Our Mission: GMHC fights to end the AIDS epidemic and uplift the lives of all affected.
AIDS is not over. In fact, awareness is down as new infections are up -- including among women, people of color and men who have sex with men. The roots of the epidemic are wide and deep, from stigma and misinformation to the increasing cost of care. At GMHC, we believe we can end the epidemic by addressing the underlying causes, shifting cultural beliefs and promoting smart behaviors that empower a healthy life for all of us.
In 1981, six gay men united against fear and death from a mysterious disease then referred to as a "gay cancer." They began collecting money from friends for research into this new disease. As the group grew and came to grips with the fact that it was such a crisis for gay men, the name of the organization was created -- Gay Men's Health Crisis.
Since before AIDS had a name and until the epidemic is over, GMHC will continue to fight AIDS and love life. To learn more about GMHC or how you can donate, volunteer, tour the agency, or become a client, visit www.gmhc.org, contact us by email, or call 212.367.1000.
