For the last 30 years, AfA has been Singapore's leading non-governmental AIDS organization, contributing to prevention efforts and keeping prevalence rates low. Our work in HIV prevention, treatment and control has won international recognition. In 2010, the World Health Organization awarded us with the prestigious Lee Jong-wook Memorial Prize for Public Health.
