Stop AIDS Project (SAP) is a United States non-profit organization established in 1985 that works to prevent HIV transmission among all gay, bisexual, and trans men in San Francisco, California, through multicultural, community-based organizing. Internationally recognized as a successful model of grassroots prevention and support, SAP brings diverse gay, bisexual, and trans men together to talk about the challenges and issues posed by Human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) through neighborhood outreach, workshops and community forums.
Their work extends beyond education—helping change behavior, create personal commitment to safer sex, build community support for each individual, with the mission statement: HIV transmission can be prevented.
The mission of STOP AIDS Project is to prevent HIV transmission among all gay, bisexual and transgender men in San Francisco through collaborative and multicultural, community- based organizing.
