Looking For HIV Testing in Colombia? Find HIV Center

In December 2017, the Ministry of Health and Social Protection and AHF Colombia signed a Memorandum of Understanding aimed to improve the country's response to HIV, reducing the gaps in access to detection and prevention of HIV and prompt treatment and quality; as well as, to reduce morbidity and mortality of people living with HIV.

 In September 2018, AHF began its work in Colombia with the opening of a Health Provider Institution (IPS in Spanish) in San José de Cúcuta, a city located at the border area with Venezuela, and epicenter of the biggest immigration influx from that country. The Department of North Santander - region where Cúcuta is the main urban center-, is the largest recipient of Venezuelan migrants which, in many cases, cross the border in search of drugs and medical care.

 This way, the AHF IPS focuses on providing comprehensive care around services of rapid tests for HIV and syphilis and its prevention, which can access the entire population regardless of their nationality, their immigration status or any other condition of vulnerability. Additionally, comprehensive care services and treatment for the HIV, completely free, with focus on the neediest population such as the migrant population in an irregular situation.

AHF Colombia offers two types of interventions: an extramural and community intervention, with special focus on prevention, rapid tests and condom delivery; the other is at the IPS, where all services related to the prevention, diagnosis, care and treatment of HIV are offered, including channeling and accompaniment aimed at national and foreign users who meet the stipulated requirements to access the Colombian health system.


At 2022 AHF offers services in six cities Bogotá, Bucaramanga, Cúcuta, Rioacha, Valledupar and Cartagena.
