National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS, Inc

The National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS, Inc., (NBLCA) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1987, with a mission to educate, mobilize, and empower African American leaders to meet the challenge of fighting HIV/AIDS and other health disparities in their local communities.

Whether working on the ground to provide direct assistance to local communities or on a wide scale to produce systemic change, NBLCA mobilizes coordinated responses and launches initiatives that promote public health and disease prevention and influence public health policy. NBLCA and its constituents are on the frontlines, improving access to quality healthcare, treatment, and educational services for vulnerable populations.
