Letter from the Board Chair

and President/CEO
Looking back on the brave and difficult history of the HIV epidemic both in Illinois and around the world
it is remarkable that we have come so far. In the thirty years since the AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC)
was established, the movement and our organization have changed dramatically.
2014 marked another year of dramatic change for the worldwide mission of ending new HIV infections and
serving people whose daily lives are impacted by HIV and AIDS, and AFC was at the forefront of that change.
With our allies and champions in Springfield and Washington, and with the support and expertise of our
vibrant partner organizations, we are creating a world in which peoples lives arent dictated by a virus.

Yet we are still so far from the time when new HIV infections are rare.
We know HIV continues to have a disproportionate impact on all gay men, and particularly young gay
and bisexual men of color, transgender women, women of color and people experiencing poverty
or homelessness. We know that awareness of HIV and preventive tools like pre-exposure
prophylaxis (PrEP) is low among these and other communities. We know that HIV apathy
is a growing force that needs to be stopped.
And with that knowledge comes the power to write the final chapter of our thirty-year
struggle with HIV. This report highlights the ways AFC has charted its course along the Road
to Health, our three-year strategic plan, to help those who are most vulnerable to HIV gain
access to testing, treatment, housing and prevention.
Thank you for standing with us, propelling the momentum forward and doing your
part to seize upon this profound time in the history of the HIV/AIDS movement.

J. Ben Stringfellow

Multifaceted housing program serves
the needs of key populations
A house is more than a home it is a foundation upon which to build healthy,
stable lives. AFC works with its vibrant network of partner agencies to provide
safe and affordable housing for low-income people with HIV and other chronic
illnesses so they have a better opportunity to flourish.


Average decrease in reported

health discomfort after six months in
supportive housing: 64%.

In 2014, AFCs combined six supportive housing and housing stabilization

programs offered 1,132 people in Illinois a home. Its two Substance Abuse and
Mental Health Services Administration programs ended in 2014 after serving a
total of 367 people in Illinois. Looking ahead to 2015, AFC will partner with Vida/
SIDA to provide needed housing to youth experiencing homelessness and living
with HIV.



In 2014, six supportive housing and housing stabilization programs provided

1,132 people in Illinois a home.

People served by one-time or emergency

assistance to remain housed: 582.

A lot of people who are

HIV-positive want to be in
the program I am in
it promotes well-being,
happiness and love.
When Scott Christian was connected with the Samaritan Housing
Program four years ago, he was presented with an opportunity:
to stop sleeping on trains, to start getting his HIV under control,
and to pursue life goals he never thought possible. Every day
presents challenges, but thanks to this vital housing program,
Christian has taken classes at a community college, walks with
his dog and teaches tennis lessons to youth through the Chicago
Park District. Taking the question of where Christian will sleep
every night out of the equation and connecting him to care that
keeps his HIV undetectable means Christian can thrive, rather
than just survive.


It doesnt matter who you are or

where your district is HIV affects
everybody. And thats why its so
important to fund HIV services.
Strong relationships between AFC and allies in the Illinois state legislature are the backbone for
maintaining funding for the essential services AFC provides to thousands of people across the
state. Two of those proponents, Representatives Thaddeus Jones (right) and Rita Mayfield (left),
have a passion for the HIV/AIDS movement, and their records prove it. Working closely with AFCs
Policy team, led by Ramon Gardenhire (center), Jones and Mayfield led the fight to secure an
additional $1 million in funding for HIV/AIDS services in the 2015 state budget. Their HIV work
doesnt stop in Springfield, though Jones leads the
Jones Foundation, which supports the HIV community
in the southern suburbs of Chicago, and Mayfield works
closely with Lake County Stands Against Stigma, which
works to educate her district about HIV.

Securing legislative support and
a nationwide network of advocates
for the HIV/AIDS community
Through partnerships with the HIV/AIDS community, local service providers
and statewide and national partners, AFCs Advocacy team works to achieve
legislative and policy support for the estimated 43,500 people living with
HIV and AIDS in Illinois.



Secured $1 million increase in HIV/AIDS

funding and helped secure a $2.6 million
increase for supportive housing in 2015
Illinois budget.

The work doesnt stop at the state level, however AFC leads nationwide and
worldwide campaigns to promote new HIV prevention technologies, reduce HIV
stigma and criminalization, expand access to female condoms, educate the HIV
and housing communities about the Affordable Care Act and more.
In 2014, advocacy efforts took members of the AFC staff to Cape Town, South
Africa, to collaborate on prevention efforts and to UN offices in Geneva to
report on inequities in the HIV epidemic. Locally, AFC staff conducted a
statewide listening tour with partner organizations to solicit input on its
policy priorities and amplified the demand for female condoms at its
Global Female Condom Day rally.


to Springfield

Led 170 advocates from across Illinois

in two lobbying and advocacy sessions in
Springfield, resulting in conversations with
over 100 state legislators.
2014 Annual Report | 7


387 trained

Awareness and testing can end new

HIV infections
AFC leads a comprehensive campaign to test thousands of individuals each year for
HIV, link HIV-positive individuals to care, provide state-of-the-art HIV prevention tools
to those who need it most and advocate for statewide and international support for
groundbreaking, new prevention methods.


unity organ


AFC increased awareness of new preventive measures, such as pre-exposure

prophylaxis (PrEP), a once-a-day pill that prevents HIV transmission by upwards
of 90%, through workshops, a strong online and social media presence and key
partnerships across Chicago.

Provided trainings on PrEP to 387 health care

providers in Chicago and downstate Illinois.


AFC doesnt just build innovative programs that screen key populations for HIV,
such as the MSM Testing Initiative, which tested 2,997 people in 2014. AFC goes one
step further by providing resources to help other organizations repeat successful
strategies, like the Bridge Project Toolkit, which outlines a strategy for offering HIV
tests in conjunction with state-run services.

96 postive

72 linked to care so far

Partnered with 36 community organizations
on 105 HIV testing outreach activities through

Tested 5,022 people, 96 of whom were identified as HIV-positive, and linked 72 to care to date.

AFC brings together some

of the brightest minds and
committed people to do the
work we do collectively.
Maurice Chapman has a wealth of experience in the HIV/AIDS sector in
Chicago but as a member of AFCs Service Providers Council (SPC),
a consortium of 34 key prevention, housing and case management
organizations across the Chicago metropolitan area, his experience
is magnified through the guidance he gets from his fellow council
members. Chapman currently leads the South Suburban HIV/
AIDS Regional Clinics (SSHARC), and the experiences he has
serving that communitys unique HIV needs are influenced by
and changing the direction of his SPC members. For example,
SSHARCs focus on providing HIV services at non-traditional
locations to reduce the impact of HIV stigma is a lesson that can be shared
with other HIV organizations on the council.

The counselor was

knowledgeable and patient.
I am delighted with my new,
lower health care premium!
The opportunities provided to millions of Americans through the Affordable
Care Act also come with a few challenges. For instance, how do you enroll
in one of the many new insurance plans on the marketplace? AFC, in
coordination with AIDS Legal Council of Chicago and Howard Brown Health
Center, sends In-Person Counselors to key community spaces around
Chicago to enroll people like Karen R. Mazique, who owns and manages
Mazique Design Services. Thanks to the support she received from an
In-Person Counselor, Mazique found a health insurance plan that fit her
needs and her budget.

81% undetectable


A spectrum of needs served, including
health insurance enrollment
AFCs case management system connects clients to the services they need. This program,
in partnerships with community organizations across Illinois, identifies medical and social
service needs and facilitates referrals to meet those needs; assists clients in applying for
benefits, including housing, transportation, food and nutrition services; and facilitates
access to emergency homelessness prevention funds in times of crisis.
One measure of success for AFCs case management program is the viral suppression of its
clients. In 2014, 81% of AFCs case management clients in Cook and the collar counties were
undetectable, meaning their HIV count was extremely low, allowing them to better manage
their health. An undetectable viral load also decreases the risk of transmitting HIV by 96%.

81% of AFCs Case Management clients

achieved viral suppression.

Recent dramatic changes in health care and health insurance prompted AFC to offer
enrollment assistance for people living with and vulnerable to HIV. The successful In-Person
Counselor program, along with new medical benefits coordinators, helped 3,422 people
enroll in Medicaid or Illinois health insurance marketplace plans in 2014.

Strengthening Illinois network
of HIV/AIDS organizations
Ending the HIV epidemic and serving the estimated 43,500
people living with HIV in Illinois cannot be accomplished by
one organization alone. AFC supports the efforts of esteemed
community-based organizations in Chicago and across Illinois to
prevent new HIV infections and serve people living with the disease.
In 2014, AFC distributed $16.3 million to over 50 organizations
through more than 65 grants and contracts.

New wheels take HIV tests

across Chicago

How can AFC support the Night Ministry, an organization known for
its network of vehicles that bring health care, support and services
to street corners across Chicago? By adding a new van to their
fleet. Through AFCs 29th round of Challenge Grants, this housing
and health care organization was awarded a grant to cover part
of the cost of a van for its new HIV Van program. A combined
total of $220,000 was awarded through Challenge Grants to 18
organizations in December 2014.

Dont play games with

your HIV status
The Salud y Orgullo Mexicano (Mexican health and pride) project works to
connect Mexican men to services at Erie Family Health Centers Lending Hands for
Life program in Humboldt Park, which offers a range of services from HIV testing
and medical care to emotional support. In collaboration with AFC, the organization
produced a vibrant, lotera-style marketing campaign to encourage Mexican men
living in Chicago to know their HIV and STI status.

Its hard to find

a safe environment,
an accepting environment,
an understanding environment.
And T2 was exactly that.
Nancy Khurana has crossed a lot of metaphorical finish lines in her
life but with TEAM TO END AIDS (T2), she was trained to cross a very
real finish line at the Chicago Half Marathon in September. T2 wasnt
just a training program for Khurana, though. It was also an opportunity
to be a part of a community that embraces people living with HIV a
community that has been hard for her to find since being diagnosed as
HIV-postive in December 2013. With support from her coaches, fellow
athletes and a very special running partner, Khurana felt equipped
to raise money for AFC, perform on race day better than shed ever
imagined and be among people who embrace those living with HIV.
