Mission

The LKA-PS mission is to help reduce the isolation and stress of people living with AIDS Survivors Syndrome (ASS). We do this by organizing social functions which provide opportunities to develop friendships and community. Further, we support education and advocacy to raise awareness of ASS, long-term survivors, and the challenges they face.
