At AAMA, we have committed over 50 years of steady, focused, and persistent HIV prevention services on Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE). AAMA has been a true champion that continues to implement innovative ways to cultivate collaborations within the community, strengthen partnerships to reduce stigma through education, and create seamless strategies for access to care. As HIV/AIDS evolved around the globe and was first identified in the United States in the early 1980’s, AAMA recognized the need to begin HIV Prevention program services for individuals at-risk for acquiring HIV in the Houston/Harris and surrounding counties.

The integration of programming for bilingual HIV prevention education has been a key component throughout AAMA, ensuring that our community has accurate information and resources. We at AAMA will continue to advance our programs by staying on the direct path of the EHE initiative. We invite you to take part in this effort. For information on how to assist, contact us at 713-926-9491 or [email protected]

About AAMA’s Mission

For more than 50 years, AAMA has helped Latinos achieve their potential. We've motivated youth to finish school and encouraged many to go on to college. We've taught immigrant adults to communicate in English and have guided scores of them to gain the knowledge they need to become contributing United States citizens. We've prepared them to enter workforce development courses and secure livable wage jobs. We've helped both youth and adults break the cycle of addiction and make positive choices that improve the quality of their lives. AAMA has empowered men, women and children to pursue their dreams and inspired leaders within the community. In short, AAMA has helped tens of thousands of Latinos to achieve. To be truly amazing.
