When you pass the site of the World AIDS Museum and Educational Center you will undoubtedly see our beautiful sign. As I look at it, I think of our original mission: to raise awareness and eradicate stigma of HIV/AIDS by documenting the history, remembering those who have suffered, educating people about the disease, enlightening the world to this continuing tragedy and empowering the survivors. Our first and continuing exhibit, Chronology of AIDS was completed in May 2014. We’ve come a long way since then, creating other powerful exhibits and conducting HIV education inside Broward public schools. I hope you'll join me by continuing to support these important efforts. -Steve Stagon Founder
From the CEO
Contemporary history has been deeply colored by the AIDS pandemic. 75 million infected people and 39 million still living with HIV means hundreds of millions more are profoundly touched and affected. We are determined to not only honor and remember but also to educate, enlighten and empower so that this painful, terribly costly and debilitating disease will be eradicated. Eliminating the stigma which prevents people from making considered and educated choices with regards to safe sex and needle use will, one human at a time, lead to halting the spread of HIV. By following our website and Facebook, you will be able to remain current on HIV related developments. -Hugh Beswick CEO
