CIELO is the fundraising gala of the The Latino Commission on AIDS. After more than 35 years of facing HIV & AIDS, medical advances have succeeded greatly, yet much work remains to be done in underserved communities.
Cielo raises funds to the initiatives and operations of the Latino Commission on AIDS. Each year, the gala convenes members of the health, business, government, entertainment, and philanthropic sectors, including individual’s donors who have the common interest of advancing the health of the Latino community.
The Latino Commission on AIDS is a nonprofit organization dedicated to addressing the spread of HIV & AIDS in the Latino community.
In response to the critical, unmet need for HIV prevention and care for Latinos, a coalition of Latino leaders founded the agency in 1990.
The Commission is dedicated to resolving the HIV crisis in the Latino community, where social stigma, poverty, language barriers, immigration status fears, and access to care, deter testing and increase the infection rate and through its extensive network works to mobilize an effective Latino community response to the health crisis created by HIV & AIDS.
The Commission’s public health model encompasses five core and complementary services, provided in English and Spanish by a culturally diverse bilingual staff of health, education and business professionals across more than 40 State and Puerto Rico.
