Africans in Partnership Against AIDS is a volunteer-driven, charitable AIDS Service Organization serving African communities in Toronto. APAA provides unique HIV/AIDS
Education and support in a linguistically and culturally appropriate manner to African peoples. We believe that a supportive environment is essential to the well-being of people living with HIV/AIDS as well as their partners, family and friends.
Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. APAA (Africans in Partnership Against Aids) emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. Established in 2000, we’re an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support. Contact us to learn more and get involved.
