It is the mission of Being Alive San Diego to deliver quality, compassionate services to people affected by HIV and AIDS; and to provide education and referral services to those in need. The Agency's goal is not just to help people living with HIV/AIDS, but to help them live well. In 2007 BASD adopted an action plan to improve services to the affected community utilizing four integrated strategies:
H E A L
Health and wellness promotion,
Early intervention, education and prevention
Adherence and medication support, and
Life skills education and support
Being Alive San Diego was founded in 1989 by HIV+ individuals who volunteered their time and talents to fill the need for support and empowerment in the HIV/AIDS affected community. Today, BASD is the largest, continually operating support service organization for people living with HIV/AIDS in San Diego County, improving the quality of life for more than 8,000 San Diegans affected by this disease. BASD's client population reflects the profile detailed in the 2009 HIV/AIDS Epidemiology Report prepared by the County of San Diego Health & Human Services Agency. Our clients are typically living in San Diego's central region, 80% are living at or below the federal poverty level and 50% of our clients that receive Peer counseling are 45 years or older.
