NCAP expands members’ opportunities, promotes their fundamental rights, and educates and increases awareness of HIV and AIDS in the surrounding rural community. Through collaboration with local pharmacies, NCAP has leveraged free medication for all the HIV positive persons in its program, increased local free HIV testing by 40%, and launched a Pastoral Care department available to all local HIV positive individuals and family members.
For over 20 years, NCAP has been the community-based organization that has led the response to HIV and AIDS in Northern Colorado. The agency has evolved according to the needs of people living with HIV and AIDS, along with adapting to public policy and attitudes towards the disease. NCAP is the only AIDS service organization in 16,000 square miles that provides comprehensive medical case management and prevention education/outreach services, including confidential HIV testing. John no longer serves as the director of the organization.
