GMFA became one organisation that fulfilled the aims of London’s combined PCT groups on HIV and AIDS, the Pan London HIV Prevention Programme, which were set out in the booklet “Making It Count”, published by Sigma Research. These organisations, including PACE and THT, would bid for contracts to cover parts of London’s HIV prevention work. For some years GMFA held the contract for small publications and training in London.
The official name of the charity is now Health Equality and Rights Organisation (HERO) as it now has a wider remit, concerned with the health of all LGBT people, not just gay men.
In March 2013 it was announced that GMFA would no longer receive funding for its London HIV information services. However GMFA News Monthly for May 2012 said:
- "By liquidating some of our assets, and streamlining our organisation, we will have enough funds to continue to provide our core activities, including our websites and FS magazine as well as delivering some radical new approaches in HIV prevention over the next couple of years."
GMFA provides an online guide to gay sports and social clubs.
There is another GMFA (short for "Gay Men Fight AIDS") in the United States, founded 1996.
