LILA Milano Onlus
LILA Milano – the Milanese unit of Lega Italiana per la Lotta contro l’AIDS (Italian League for Fighting AIDS) – is a nonprofit organization. It was established as a Voluntary Association in May 1989 and is today part of the National LILA Federation, which totals 14 units in Italy. In February 2010, its members voted for the transformation of the organization into a participatory Foundation for Scientific Research in order to ensure it greater stability and foster psychosocial research studies. In October 2010, Fondazione LILA Milano was registered at the Prefecture Register of Milan. Our volunteers, social workers and professionals are a team of HIV-positive and -negative individuals who work together supporting PLHIV and preventing the transmission of HIV. We are committed to defending the right to health, and to affirming solidarity against all forms of exclusion and the violation of rights of people living with HIV or AIDS. Over the years, LILA Milano has developed numerous projects in the city and other provinces of the region, some of which were developed in collaboration with local authorities, public authorities (Public Health Departments, public services for people who inject drugs, etc.), national and international institutions and leading institutions for scientific and psychosocial research (many universities, the National Institute of Health, the National Institute of Infectious Diseases, Psychology Institute etc.).
