HIV Alliance was founded in 1994 to support people living with HIV/AIDS and prevent new HIV infections. At HIV Alliance, we accomplish our mission through youth and adult education and prevention programs that target key communities. These programs and services help people living with HIV maintain and improve their physical, social, and mental health Initially. We provided HIV education, prevention and care services in Lane County only. However, over the years, the structure and funding around HIV has changed. As a result our region has expanded to include eleven counties in Oregon: Lane, Douglas, Josephine, Lake, Klamath, Jackson, Coos, Curry, Lincoln, Clatsop and Marion. In 2007 we teamed up with the Lane Community College Dental Assisting and Dental Hygiene schools to provide low-cost, comprehensive dental services to people living with HIV/AIDS. Over the years we have partnered with other HIV care providers and community colleges to offer dental services to people living with HIV/AIDS in as many as thirty-one counties across the state. As an organization we operate under a framework of core values that not only inform but direct our work. Our core values include: collaboration, empowerment, adaptability and innovation, continuous improvement, and non-judgment.
