International Association of Providers of AIDS Care
Mission Statement: To craft and implement global educational and advocacy strategies to improve the quality of care provided to all people living with HIV/AIDS.
Vision: IAPAC envisions a world in which people living with HIV/AIDS may obtain the best healthcare available provided by physicians and allied health professionals armed with cutting-edge clinical expertise.
The International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC) was established in 1995 by healthcare professionals and civic leaders who recognized an urgent need for a coordinated medical response to the HIV pandemic. There was no organization at that time exclusively devoted to marshaling the collective experience and strength of healthcare professionals worldwide to the benefit of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Fifteen years later, IAPAC — with offices in Chicago and Washington, DC, and programs in 27 countries — represents a professional membership of more than 13,000 physicians and other healthcare professionals in over 100 countries.
