Supreme Court Upholds ACA Subsidies in All States

With their 6-3 decision on King v. Burwell, the Supreme Court has upheld subsidies for health insurance premiums in all states under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The decision, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, strongly reinforces the constitutionality of the health law, saying it was passed "to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them."

Raising Awareness of HIV in Indianapolis

Raising Awareness in Indianapolis With PrEP being such a significant development in HIV prevention, the AIDS United AmeriCorps Team in Indianapolis hosted an event to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS prevention and PrEP for our Long Term Project. PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis), a daily pill that can reduce risk of HIV infection, is not something that is discussed very much in Indianapolis outside of the medical community. We wanted to use our Long Term Project as an opportunity to reach the general population.

Team Atlanta Makes it Cool to Care about HIV Prevention

These events were eye opening for us because we were able to really get into the community and converse with other young people face-to-face. There is a great need for the HIV testing and counseling services we provide, and personally speaking, I think the students appreciated that we’re not just professionals; we’re their peers too. We’re at similar points in our lives, and we’re able to connect with them as young people who care about our health and our community. In essence, we make it cool to care!

Beyond Testing: Empowering Women to Pursue Healthy Lives

While I still have a lot to learn and do during my service, I appreciate each moment with my clients. I am part of a conversation; an exploration of a complex yet often overlooked human experience. While subtle, I can see that I am offering something beyond testing – I’m offering dignity, a break from fear, from the unknown, and from stigma.

Behind The Scenes: A Filmmaker in San Francisco | #PrideInPrevention

Upon seeing AIDS United’s #PrideInPrevention promotion, I knew this topic hit close to home. I live in San Francisco, a city with one of the largest populations of LGBT people and highest rates of HIV in the United States. Nationally, HIV infection rates have raised 22% in gay and bisexual men since 2008 and almost 50,000 people become infected each year. In San Francisco, almost one in four gay or bisexual men is living with HIV.
