Mission & Philosophy The San Antonio AIDS Foundation (SAAF) has a dual mission � to provide compassionate medical care and social services to people with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), and to help prevent the spread of HIV through education and testing. We are guided by the belief that HIV/AIDS is a disease and those affected by this disease should receive compassion and understanding.

SAAF advocates a harm reduction philosophy believing that all individuals with HIV need compassionate services, including food and shelter, irrespective of their individual services and practices.
