Impelled by a determination to reduce the rate of HIV infection among African Americans, the National African American Catholic HIV/AIDS Task Force works to spread the Good News that Jesus loves all of us including those living with HIV virus and AIDS. It endeavors to be a welcoming and compassionate community of believers towards those living with HIV and AIDS as well as their families and friends. Through programs of education the Task Force seeks to promote prevention, early testing for HIV infection followed by early treatment and referral to medical care facilities.
