Latest Attack on Americans’ Health Care Must Be Defeated

We urge Senate Republicans to protect the health care needs of vulnerable individuals living with HIV and other STDs by opposing the Cassidy-Graham-Heller-Johnson Amendment to H.R. 1628, the “American Health Care Act of 2017.” The proposal would strip coverage from those who need it the most – people with low incomes, living with life-threatening and chronic conditions, or with pre-existing medical conditions.


Senate Funding Bill Protects HIV, STD Programs

Advocates for a robust response to the continuing needs and challenges of the HIV and STD epidemics are encouraged by the recent bipartisan legislation approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee funding the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education in Fiscal Year 2018. The Committee rejected President Trump’s harsh proposals to cut federal funding for HIV and STD prevention and treatment. The Committee’s Fiscal Year 2018 bill instead would continue funding for domestic HIV programs at their current Fiscal Year 2017 levels.



A $1 million fund to help HIV organizations impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma was announced today at the opening of the 21st annual U.S. Confer-ence on AIDS in Washington, DC. The $1 million is being donated by Gilead Sciences.


Demonstration Project Amplifies Transgender Leadership in Fight Against HIV

WASHINGTON, D.C. — September 6, 2017 — Through the generous support of Janssen Therapeutics, Division of Janssen Products, LP, eight organizations in six states, DC and Puerto Rico were awarded AIDS United’s first-ever demonstration grants to increase transgender leadership within organizations, in community planning bodies and in local networks to aid the response to HIV.


AIDS United Reaffirms Our Condemnation of the Trump Administration’s Shameful Ban on Transgender Individuals Serving in the Military

This past July, AIDS United issued a statement condemning the Trump Administration’s initial announcement that the United States Government would begin openly discriminating against transgender individuals’ right to serve in the U.S. military. We did so not just out of solidarity with the transgender community, but also with the hope that we could play a part in changing President Trump’s decision with regards to this unjustifiable and unnecessary declaration of bigotry.


Those Who Seek to Divide Us Will Not Succeed

AIDS United joins the organizations and individuals around the globe in expressing our resolve to fight against the hatred on display this week. The events in Charlottesville and the inexcusable response by President Trump remind all of us of the tremendous impact of hatred, violence, and fear have on us as individuals, the communities in which we live, and those that we strive to serve.


AIDS United Announces Richard Sorian as Senior Communications Advisor

AIDS United announced today that Richard Sorian, a respected communications and HIV policy leader, has joined the organization as a Senior Communications Advisor. He will lead efforts to communicate with the public and policymakers about HIV issues, policies and programs.


AIDS United is Moving!

AIDS United is thrilled to announce that as of August 28 we will move two blocks to our new home at 1101 14th Street, NW. The new, modern space will allow us to expand our work ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States.


Votes to Preserve Health Care Coverage Deserve Applause

On behalf of people living with and at risk for HIV and other STDS and the millions of other men, women and children who rely on access to high-quality, affordable health care to live the lives they deserve, we applaud the U.S. Senate vote to defeat the dangerous and misguided efforts to damage and destroy the Affordable Care Act.


AIDS United Calls on Trump Administration To Reverse Their Discriminatory Ban on Transgender Individuals Serving in the Military

AIDS United strongly condemns the recent announcement from President Trump stating that the United States Government will no longer accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in the military in any capacity. This decision is an unacceptable and gross display of bigotry that is an insult to all U.S. service members faithfully serving their country. When the Obama administration announced last June that transgender individuals would be able to serve openly in the military, we were not “burdened,” but strengthened. A ban against Americans serving in the military because of their gender identity is a malicious and harmful action that is being carried out not for the safety or efficacy of those in uniform, but for the intolerance of those in power.
