Our Mission

NASTAD’s mission is to strengthen state and territory-based and global leadership, expertise and advocacy and bring them to bear in reducing the incidence of HIV and viral hepatitis infections and on providing care and support to all who live with HIV and viral hepatitis.

NASTAD's vision is a world free of HIV/AIDS and viral hepatitis.

Who We Are & What We Do

Founded in 1992, NASTAD (National Alliance of State & Territorial AIDS Directors) is a non-profit national association representing the chief state health agency staff in all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the U.S. Pacific Islands. NASTAD members have programmatic responsibility for administering state health department HIV and hepatitis healthcare, prevention, education, and supportive service programs funded by state and federal governments. As a national leader in health department mobilization, NASTAD encourages the use of applied scientific knowledge and community engagement as a method of reducing the incidence of HIV and hepatitis infections in the U.S., its territories, and around the world. Each of NASTAD’s six programmatic teams—Health Care Access, Health Systems IntegrationPolicy & Legislative AffairsHepatitisHealth Equity & Prevention, and Global—interpret and influence policies, conduct trainings, offer technical assistance, and provide advocacy mobilization for U.S. health departments and ministries of health around the world to improve health outcomes for people living with HIV and hepatitis.


NASTAD is a non-profit national association which has been granted tax exempt status under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3). We value the long-standing support of our community. As a nonprofit organization on which health departments rely every year, NASTAD is committed to transparency. Below are a number of important documents prepared at the close of each year that outline our financial health, including our state and federal tax filings and a financial audit prepared by an independent third-party.

NASTAD is proud to share with the public our most recent annual report, which documents the breadth of NASTAD’s work in the mission to develop and strengthen state and territory-based leadership, expertise, and advocacy.
