The records document all areas of the organization's activities, including provision of HIV/AIDSeducation and services to young people, training of socialservice and health care workers, advocacy of government funding for HIV/AIDS prevention programs, and sponsorship of youth activism in support of HIV/AIDS services.
The AIDS and Adolescents Network of New York (AANNY) was established in 1987 by a coalition of social and health service providers concerned with the impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on adolescents.
Members of AANNY included educators, students, counselors, health care workers and policy-makers representing public and private hospitals, schools, socialservice agencies, city agencies and AIDS service organizations from the five boroughs of New York City. AANNY sponsored HIV/AIDS education and prevention programsfor young people, and organized conferences and workshops for social service providers. The organization pressured city and state government officials to support public policies and funding to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS, and encouraged young people to participate in these lobbying efforts. AANNY advocated the inclusion of HIV/AIDS education in the New York City public school curriculum, and supported a controversial Board of Education-sponsoredprogram to distribute condoms to students. Organizational members of AANNY included Gay Men's Health Crisis, Lesbian& Gay Community Services Center and New York Community Trust. Financial supporters included the American Foundation for AIDS Research, the Fund for the City of NewYork, the Rockefeller Brothers Foundation and the Ms. Foundation for Women. In addition, various AANNY activities were funded by city and state government agencies. Declining financial support forced AANNY to close its offices and public programs in 1999.
