This collection contains an incomplete but representative selection of records documenting the work of the Filipino Task Force
on AIDS (FTFA), an organization dedicated to ending the risk of HIV/AIDS in the Filipino community. There are a wide variety
of materials in the collection, including correspondence and memos; meeting agendas, minutes and reports; budgets and general
ledgers; risk assessments and surveys about sexual behavior; materials related to programs and events, such as Transgender
Intervention for Filipinas (TGIF) and the Miss Trans Globe Pageant.
Established in 1988, the Filipino Task Force on AIDS (FTFA) was dedicated to ending the risk of HIV/AIDS in the Filipino community.
FTFA offered a comprehensive range of HIV/AIDS-related services to Filipinos and Asian-Pacific Islanders. They targeted gay,
bisexual and transgender Filipinos, populations that had been historically underserved. The organization closed its doors
in 2005. FTFA provided services in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area through case management, client care, community
events, drop-in counseling, media campaigns, prevention outreach, speakers’ bureaus, support groups and workshops.
