The Afiya Center is very unique in that we are one of the very few non- profit reproductive justice organizations in North Texas founded and directed by women of color.
We seek to create an atmosphere where women’s experiences are the center of our thinking; addressing the unique needs of women, increasing awareness and advocacy around policies that impact women’s lives. By approaching HIV/AIDS prevention from a reproductive justice framework, The Afiya Center effectively and realistically strives to decrease new infections among women of color.
The Afiya Center has been successful in aligning the organization with national women led organizations that focus on creating positive change in women’s lives especially women of color. In the early inception, the organization swiftly identified the intersectionality that exists between reproductive justice, high incidence and the prevalence rate of HIV/AIDS among women of color. The Afiya Center creates projects that improve the health outcomes of women living with HIV/AIDS, decrease new infections and promotes entrepreneur enterprise. It is the believed by empowering these women and equipping them with tools to generate wealth, they no longer allow their status to define them, rather they will define their status.
