The HIV Community & COVID-19

As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds across the world, the HIV community has been grappling with unique uncertainty and fear in this unprecedented health crisis. Some of us might be experiencing trauma from the constant news about COVID-19 or are feeling retraumatized from our past experiences with HIV. The AIDS United team is continuing to develop resources, activities and initiatives that address the HIV epidemic during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We want you to know that you are not alone.


Politicization of the CDC leaves those of us living with HIV wondering who to believe 

While we know evidence should lead decision-making, anti-LGBTQ and partisan bias creep into the decision-making process far too frequently. We have fought to expose these biases for nearly 40 years. We have made progress, but those gains are in danger. The federal government is once again allowing partisan bias to take priority over science.

AIDS United has fought to make sure the communities most impacted by HIV — including gay and bisexual men, communities of color, women, people who use drugs, and people living in the Deep South — have access to high-quality, affordable health care. COVID-19, and our nation’s response to it, threatens to undo much of that progress. That’s why we’re working to equip our partners in the field with the tools they need to sustain and continue their work.
