About Love Heals:
Love Heals was founded in 1992 to carry on the memory of the late AIDS activist Alison Gertz, who contracted HIV from a single sexual encounter at the age of 16.
Love Heals, the Alison Gertz Foundation for AIDS Education, empowers young people in the fight against HIV. Love Heals’ speakers are putting a face to the epidemic and their youth empowerment programs are training a new generation of community educators and activists.
Love Heals also creates and distributes educational material, shares its expertise and advocates for young people’s right to HIV/AIDS education. Love Heals does this in partnership with hundreds of schools and community groups throughout New York City and the surrounding areas, reaching both young people and those individuals who impact their lives, and placing a special emphasis on outreach to high-risk communities.
By the close of 2011, Love Heals will have directly educated more than 500,000 young people about the realities of HIV and AIDs. The 300-plus young women of color who have completed Love Heals peer education training program have reached an additional 10,000 through their community action projects.
