Connection & Inspiration: The 2015 Access to Care Convening

In mid-June, AIDS United brought together representatives from its Access to Care and Retention in Care initiatives for the fifth and final Access to Care Convening. Representatives from partner organizations came from across the country to meet in Washington DC, to share successes and challenges, to discuss lessons learned from the ground-breaking initiatives, to hear presentations on the national evaluation documenting the positive impact of their work for people living with HIV, and to celebrate the connections and collaboration that have been fostered over the years.

Peers Reduce Isolation and Barriers to Care

When I first came to this country from Haiti it was really hard to find someone to talk to. I worked with a Peer from [a similar agency] that would come to my house. We would write down everything I wanted to discuss with my doctor. Then he would go with me to my doctor’s appointment and share what we had written down. It was very helpful.

Raising Awareness Through Conscious Creations

Conscious Creations is a campaign to raise HIV awareness in the greater Cleveland area, specifically among youth. Team Cleveland created an art contest to engage high school-aged youth in Cleveland to think about HIV and how it may affect them and their peers. We chose to focus on the youth of Cleveland because this is disproportionately the most affected group. Youth aged 13-24 make up 24% of the new diagnoses in Cuyahoga County, where Cleveland is located. We wanted to be able to reach this population to increase awareness and reduce stigma around HIV.

At the Intersection of Health & Social Justice: the Transgender Health Summit 2015

The collective energy and excitement among participants at the 2015 Transgender Health Summit was obvious upon our arrival. During the opening plenary, we learned that the due to community demand, the conference had nearly doubled in attendance since the previous conference. This growth parallels the long overdue attention to the needs and realities of transgender people in the US in regards to HIV prevention and treatment. AIDS United served as a sponsor of the event, and I felt proud to be a part of a team that added to the success of this important gathering.
