Ending HIV takes all of us.

Health Care Advocates International (HCAI) is proud to support the Elton John AIDS Foundation in the fight to end HIV and the stigma around it.

Our founder, Dr. Gary Blick, lived through the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980s, and cemented his mission to stamp it out when he formed HCAI in 2016. Since then, our team has touched lives from here in Connecticut to Zimbabwe, where we have provided life-saving care to nearly 10,000 people with HIV.

We are HCAI People who see you.

Beyond our work to end HIV, HCAI is a leader in LGBTQ+ advocacy – whether that means awarding funding to nonprofits through our grant program, or helping LGBTQ+ youth live as their most authentic selves.
