History

BAP HISTORY

The El Paso Community Foundation and the US/Mexico Border Health Association collaborated in 1994 to create a local HIV/AIDS partnership that would provide assistance to nonprofit organizations in the surrounding region working on this critical health problem. These beginning efforts and support from the National AIDS Fund resulted in the creation of the Border AIDS Partnership. We are a bi-national and tri-state collaborative that provides funding for HIV/AIDS education and prevention activities in El Paso, Texas, Southern New Mexico, and Ciudad Juárez, México. In January 2007, the Border AIDS Partnership received its 501c3 letter of determination and continues the critical work of funding community-based organizations in our region as an independent nonprofit.
