Please join us at our community health fair to obtain FREE health screenings, health information, raffles and vendors!!

Interested in being an exhibitor? Feel free to fill out this form and email to:

Exhibitor form: http://valleyaids.org.edit.officite.com/docs/2018-09-07%2030th%20Year%20Health%20Fair%20Registration%20Form.pdf

Valley AIDS Council (VAC) is the primary provider of HIV prevention, education and testing services and the only Ryan White funded agency providing medical care and supportive services for people living with HIV in the 3-county area that stretches from the lower Rio Grande Valley on the US/Mexico border.

In 1987, health care leaders from the Cameron and Hidalgo County
Departments of Health and from Planned Parenthood met with
representatives from the Texas Department of Health in response to the growing incidence of HIV/AIDS. That visionary meeting led to the founding of the Valley AIDS Council (VAC), and its growth from a small, collaborative, grassroots response into a comprehensive, multi-site, one-stop, community-based response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. In 1988, VAC secured funding to hire its first staff member – an HIV/AIDS community health educator funded by the Texas Department of Health.

In 2018, as we celebrate our three decades of service, we will recommit ourselves to continuously improve the quality of our services to better serve and care for the health of our community. Thank you for being a part of this journey with us!”
