Our programs aim to heighten awarness of HIV/AIDS, as well as other related diseases, and to promote community empowerment.
TaskForce's primary mission has been to provide preventive services to youth, young adult and adult men who are at risk for HIV and other STIs through a well coordinated and culturally responsive health care system and other resources.
TaskForce works to provide solutions that counter the impacts of stigmatic community norms by providing a space that is welcoming and judgment free to the entire Austin community and Chicago metropolitan area.
Specifically, we focus on developing programming that is centered on positive social interaction among adolescents and their social networks. This focus allows TaskForce and its staff a point of entry to infuse positive mentoring through peer-leadership, prevention education, HIV/STI testing and treatment, mental health and care support.
