The Alliance helps New Yorkers living with HIV and other chronic health conditions get the medical care, peer support, and housing assistance they need to achieve health, happiness, and stability.


Who We Are

In 1990, a group of three founded AIDS Service Center (ASC) in a small, donated workspace in Manhattan’s garment district.

Here’s how we’ve grown since.

The Alliance has made a change in me
But there is still more
Positive Change in me
