Knowledge is power. The San Antonio AIDS Foundation continually educates the public about HIV – providing the tools to fight both the spread and stigma of the disease. From public school presentations and outreach in correctional facilities to workplace seminars and professional workshops – as well as through targeted social media campaigns - our prevention education team reaches tens of thousands of people a year.


the Cure

Started in 1992, the “You’re The Cure” program has been providing prevention education services to over 20,000 participants annually. Services are provided to eight school districts in Bexar County and to three school districts in surrounding counties. The San Antonio AIDS Foundation is the only AIDS service organization (ASO) that provides HIV/STD prevention education to school districts in Bexar County.

We partner with the following school districts for HIV/STD prevention education:

  • San Antonio Independent School District
  • Northeast Independent School District
  • Northside Independent School District
  • UT Teen Health

The program also works at local college campuses, charter schools, trade schools, drug treatment programs, juvenile and adult probations, and in correction facilities in Bexar County.

If you are interested in receiving prevention education services at your organization or business, please contact SAAF Prevention Education Coordinator Vanessa Zuniga, at (210) 225-4715 or
