Our Purpose

MAP staff

The Minnesota AIDS Project envisions a Minnesota where new HIV infections are eliminated and individuals with HIV live long and healthy lives. We opened our doors in 1983, during the early years of the AIDS crisis. For over three decades, we’ve led Minnesota's fight to stop HIV through prevention, advocacy, awareness, and direct services.

Today, in partnership with over 1,000 volunteers, the Minnesota AIDS Project provides compassionate, confidential and non–discriminatory services to people living with HIV across the state of Minnesota. Our dedicated staff also reaches people who don’t have HIV through prevention education, HIV testing, and outreach to communities facing the greatest risk for transmission.

So long as people living with HIV experience stigma, discrimination, and chronic illness, we will be leading the fight to stop this disease. We invite you to support us, learn about our history, and join us in the fight.
