Help us spread the word: HIV does not discriminate.
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) weakens a person immune system. The virus can be contracted through unprotected sex, needle sharing, birth, breastfeeding, and blood transfusions. HIV is transmitted through Blood, Semen, Vaginal Secretions, and Breastmilk. Any person that has engaged in any of these risks with someone living with the virus could be exposed. This means that HIV does not discriminate based on a person’s health, marital status, or income.

Serving the Upstate.
For the Community.
AID Upstate was incorporated in 1987. The organization began several years earlier as a committee, then task force composed of individuals working in public health in response to a then unnamed illness that was primarily affecting young gay men and rapidly progressing to death. This grass-roots response to the AIDS pandemic developed into a consortium of public and private health organizations, service organizations, interested individuals and persons living with HIV.
