AVOL Kentucky’s mission is to collaborate with communities to END HIV in Kentucky.
Our work strives for:

Increasing the number of people living with HIV who know their HIV status


Reducing the number of Kentuckians with newly acquired HIV 

Increasing the number of people living with HIV connected to medical care

 Increasing the number of people living with HIV who are virally suppressed

Eliminating disparities in HIV outcomes

Services Overview

The tools available today to fight HIV are more effective than ever. We now know that people living with extremely low levels of HIV will not pass the virus along to others. This “viral suppression” involves many factors, the most important of which is that persons living with HIV remain engaged in medical care and medication adherence. Our housing, support and empowerment services have proven to reinforce and support medical adherence, leading to viral suppression. PrEP, an effective daily pill taken to prevent the transmission of HIV, is becoming increasingly accessible. Through these elements and traditional tried and true approaches like increasing access to testing, advocating condom use, education, reducing barriers, and raising awareness, together, WE CAN End HIV in Kentucky.
