Message from our Chair:
It is with a grain of sadness that, as Chair of MAP Board of Directors, I announce that the organization is closing definitely its business operation as a non-profit. In its over eight years of existence as a 501(c)3, MAP accomplished various important initiatives in fulfillment of its mission. MAP has no pending business with partners and it is in good standing with regulatory agencies. If you have any inquiry, please submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, the Latino Southern REACH Final Report webpage will be accessible until May 2018.
Sincerely, Jesus Felizzola, MD, MHSA, MA
Welcome to our website!
Miami AIDS Project MAP- is a non-profit 501(c) 3 community-based minority-oriented HIV/AIDS initiative.
MAPs mission is to foster sustainable solutions that contribute to the well-being of communities affected by the
HIV/AIDS and Substance Abuse diseases.
Founded in 2008 by a diverse team of committed community leaders and healthcare and social science professionals,
MAP is a regional and national leader in providing community-driven solutions that strengthen the capacity of providers
in improving the delivery of quality services and patient outcomes. We collaborate with other organizations to develop,
implement, and evaluate evidence-based practices and promote an informed dialogue to support compassionate HIV/AIDS
and substance abuse policy.
Our team has a combined experience of more than 40 years in HIV/AIDS and substance abuse prevention, care, research,
program evaluation, and capacity building with a focus on improving health outcomes and reducing health disparities. After many
years of active involvement in community and academic work locally and nationally; MAPs founders identified the need for building
community capacity to better respond to the challenges posed by the two epidemics of HIV/AIDS and substance abuse in South Florida.
