Saturday, January 26th from 4pm to 6pm, a sunset ceremony will mark the closing of Chris Brownlie Hospice, AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s first program and the first AIDS hospice in Los Angeles County.
Named in honor of writer and activist Chris Brownlie, it was the first of three AHF hospices providing loving care to thousands of people in the final stages of AIDS from December 1988 through September 1996, when the advent of lifesaving antiretroviral therapies allowed AHF to repurpose the building in its fight against AIDS, most recently serving as the headquarters of AHF’s Public Health Division.
Chris Brownlie Hospice and AIDS Hospice Foundation grew into today’s AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which now cares for nearly 200,000 AIDS patients in 28 countries & provides free HIV & STD testing.
AHF honors all those who lived and died at Chris Brownlie and the family, friends and staff who so lovingly cared for them.
