  • Mission:
  • African Services Committee is dedicated to improving the health and self sufficiency of communities in New York City and in Ethiopia that are deeply impacted by the HIV/AIDS crisis, through the provision of HIV prevention, treatment, care and supportive services

  • History:
  • African Services Committee (African Services or ASC) was founded in 1981, in New York City, by a group of Ethiopian refugees. African Services was initially established to provide immigration and resettlement assistance to refugees and asylum seekers fleeing political, social and economic strife.

    In the early 1990s, as the gravity of the HIV/AIDS epidemic became apparent, African Services made a deliberate shift in mission and began to develop a range of HIV health and self sufficiency services that would eventually become the centerpiece of its operations. Today, African Services provides a continuum of HIV services designed to address the HIV crisis within New York City’s African and Caribbean immigrant communities. Although African Services’ expertise lies in serving immigrants from Africa and non-Hispanic Caribbean countries, services are open to all and our clients reflect the diversity found in New York City.

    In 2003, African Services’ founder, Asfaha Hadera, established African Services Committee in Ethiopia, where the epidemic was spreading at an alarming rate. African Services Committee, Ethiopia runs four voluntary counseling and testing HIV clinics located in the capital Addis Ababa, and Tigray and Oromiya regions.
