The mission of Maui AIDS Foundation is to promote the sexual health and well-being of the members of our community.
Founded in 1986, Maui AIDS Foundation (MAF) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) health and social service organization focused on promoting the sexual health and well-being of the members of our community. MAF is the only AIDS service organization serving Maui County including the islands of Maui, Lanai and Molokai. MAF provides direct services that include linkage to medical care, access to HIV medications, food, and emotional and educational support to those in need. MAF also provides comprehensive educational and testing programs. These preventative programs provide information, preventative tools and testing on sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as HIV, Hepatitis-C (HCV) and Syphilis. Maui AIDS Foundation has provided these vital services free of cost to the community of Maui County. MAF has broadened our programs and services over time extending in to Harm Reduction and Drug Prevention.

WHAT IS U = U?
U=U means “undetectable equals untransmittable.”
More specifically, it means that people living with HIV who have an undetectable level of virus in their blood due to treatment are unable to transmit the virus to others.

MAUI AIDS FOUNDATION IN STEADFAST SUPPORT OF BLACK LIVES MATTER
Maui AIDS Foundation (MAF) stands in steadfast support of Black Lives Matter and our shared pursuit of a more just society.
At MAF, our work is predicated on people entrusting us with their health, sexuality, and details of their personal lives. Every person who enters our doors must be confident they will be treated with the utmost care and respect. However, in our society, it is clear that Black people are often not afforded the same level of care and respect as others. For that reason, we echo the refrain being heard around the world: Black Lives Matter!
MAF has always strived to serve those who are marginalized within our community. Marginalization, violence, and every other form of injustice are antithetical to the dignity of human life and the bonds of a healthy, thriving, and inclusive community.
Therefore, we call upon every person across Hawai‘i and the world to affirm with us that #BlackLivesMatter and to ensure all members of our society can live their lives with equal respect and dignity so we may all thrive as individuals and communities. We will not standby silently while any member of our society is systematically deprived of justice.
"There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about."
