The ADAP Advocacy Association
(aaa+®) mission is to promote
and enhance the AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs) and improve access
to care for persons living with HIV/AIDS.
aaa+® works with advocates,
community, health care, government, patients, pharmaceutical companies and
other stakeholders to assure that access to services recognize and afford
persons living with HIV/AIDS to enjoy a healthy life.

grassroots organization focused exclusively on ADAPs and ensuring that there
are adequate resources nationwide to eliminate or prevent waiting lists for
services. Our purpose is to better engage people living with HIV/AIDS by
providing a platform whereby they can offer their personal experiences,
challenges, knowledge, insight and solutions to solving this perpetual problem.
