Southern REACH

AIDS United’s Southern REACH (Regional Expansion of Access and Capacity to Address HIV/AIDS) initiative supports the improvement of the HIV/AIDS focused policy/advocacy activities of community-based organizations in nine states of the U.S. South (AL, FL, GA, LA, MS, NC, SC, TN), one of the nation’s most impacted regions in the HIV/AIDS epidemic, as evidence by extreme health disparities. The program, with generous support provided by the Ford Foundation, includes grantmaking, technical assistance and network development. The grant awards support the development of programs that seek to achieve social change, shape responsible HIV/AIDS public policy, and/or respond to the underlying legal, political, and systemic barriers contributing to disproportionate rates of HIV/AIDS in the Southern United States.

To raise awareness of REACH, highlight the issue of HIV/AIDS in the South, and to support awareness of the work and successes of its grantees, AIDS United launched an initiative specific microsite available at: The site includes case studies, grantee profiles, and more!
