AFRICAN AMERICANS REACH AND TEACH HEALTH (AARTH) is a non-religious 501c3 faith-based capacity building nonprofit organization, established to respond to HIV/AIDS and other major health issues affecting people of African descent.  

AARTH Ministry was established in September 2002 to help bridge the gap in health inequities by providing social/behavioral health education and training capacity building services to faith, health and social service institutions that serve people of African descent.
