HISTORY OF MAC

The Multicultural AIDS Coalition is the oldest Minority AIDS Service Organization in New England. Since 1988, the MAC has been successful in reaching out to thousands of individuals from diverse cultures and language backgrounds in raising their awareness and level of understanding about HIV/AIDS, and supporting them into HIV services.

  • Our prevention and education programs reach out to diverse populations, giving people the tools they need to prevent HIV infection.
  • Our Health Access Network utilizes the capacity and expertise of individuals in our communities to bring those at very high risk for HIV infection and those who are HIV infected into prevention, treatment and care.
  • Our programs bridge the services gaps for many underserved communities, among them Sub-Saharan Africans, Black Men Who Have Sex with Men (MSM), Injection Drug Users and their sex partners, Women sex partners of MSM.
  • The MAC is the leading partner in organizing our communities to plan strategically.
  • We advocate for fair and effective HIV-related policies for people of color.
  • We train other organizations to better operate and meet the needs of communities of color.

We are part of a growing national movement to stem the tide of HIV/AIDS in communities of color, a movement recognized by the creation of the federal Minority HIV/AIDS Initiative. Together, we can make our communities healthier and stronger. Together, we can make our many voices heard.
