Who We Are

The Anti-Sida Citizen Association of Catalonia (ACASC) is a non-governmental organization that was declared a public entity in 2006. Located in the district of El Raval in Barcelona, its main goal is to comprehensively improve the quality of life for people affected by HIV/AIDS and to inform and raise awareness among the citizens in order to prevent the disease, as well as fighting to defend the rights of the people affected by HIV as public health care system users and citizens for all practical purposes.


ACASC works to prevent HIV/AIDS infection and raise awareness within society as well as to provide assistance to people affected by the disease, especially to those living in a situation of severe social exclusion.


Our goal is to curb the spread of HIV and eradicate social stigma and discrimination. We want to bring dignity to all of the people living with the disease.


Solidarity and altruism: helping others is the main reason of our existence and the ultimate purpose of our foundation.

Respect: dignity and rights of the individual are necessary to build a tolerant, nonjudgmental, and equality-based society.

Commitment: daily work and the effort dedicated to our cause are what allow us to get better results each year.

Transparency: proper management and clarity in all of our actions are the foundation of our identity.
