ASO Merger Series


The changing health care environment has AIDS Service Organizations facing critical questions, opportunities, and challenges. It’s a brave new world—and it can be a complicated one to navigate. Managing change, however, cannot happen thoughtfully without the right resources.

Mergers can be a powerful option to explore. For some organizations, a merger is a survival strategy when economic pressures, leadership changes, or other factors make it difficult or impossible to remain viable on their own. For others, a merger represents an opportunity for a strong organization to become even more impactful. In fact, many organizations find that a merger helps them both survive and thrive. And for some, an exploration of merger may result in the decision not to merge, but the process may still yield valuable outcomes.

Through Sector Transformation, AIDS United has released a series of merger-themed briefs specifically designed to support AIDS Service Organizations (ASO) who are considering a merger. The ASO Merger Series highlights key principles, practical lessons, and includes valuable checklists to guide you from assessing a potential merger to implementation and integration.

The ASO Merger Series is divided into seven distinct sections. It can be used as a tool to guide all or part of your merger assessment, implementation, or integration. You may find the entire series or just specific sections particularly helpful.
