Biography/Administrative History

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.
