AIDS Partnership California (APC)
AIDS Partnership California (APC) is a statewide public/private collaboration whose purpose is to arrest the escalating rate of HIV in California, inform sound policy decisions, and strengthen the systems of HIV prevention and care and treatment. APC identifies emerging issues with a statewide impact, funds innovative solutions, and promotes learning through grantmaking, convening, training, and dissemination of findings. APC benefits persons with HIV or at risk for HIV, community-based organizations providing HIV services, health departments, and foundations.
On March 21, 2007 CHRP and the AIDS Partnership California formally embarked on a partnership to fund community-based efforts to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in California.
APC started as a regional grantmaking fund at Northern California Grantmakers in 1987 and expanded statewide in 2000. The CHRP/APC partnership enables both organizations to expand and grow to address the most critical emerging issues in the evolving HIV epidemic. The partnership will leverage the advantages of each program to involve a wider constituency and have a greater impact on the epidemic, and in the communities it affects.
