Ten Community Organizations Get Funding for Positive Organizing Project

AIDS United has awarded grants to 10 community-based organizations to help end HIV stigma and discrimination while building leadership among people living with HIV. AIDS United’s Positive Organizing Project (POP), with generous support from Gilead Sciences, taps a new generation of leaders living with HIV to help end the HIV epidemic in the U.S.


National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day

ASPIRA, National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA), League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA), AIDS United, Hispanic Radio Network and Pinyon Foundation, in alliance with the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) have come together to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and stigma.


HIV and STD Organizations Denounce Trump Administration’s Actions to Degrade the ACA

People living with HIV and other STDs, particularly people of color, often face multiple barriers to accessing the care and treatment they need to stay healthy. The President’s actions would only strengthen these barriers, making it even more difficult for these communities most impacted by HIV to receive the care they need.


AIDS United Provides Support to HIV Organizations in Hurricane Areas

Organizations serving the HIV community in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico have received more than $190,000 in combined funding to help them meet the needs of people living with and affected by HIV in communities damaged by this year’s hurricanes affecting Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The funding will be used to support a range of services including housing, safe food and water, medicine, and care.


Donations to Support Urgent HIV Hurricane Relief Effort Needed

The destruction in these states and U.S. territories demands a speedy response from our community. In the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the HIV Hurricane Relief Effort was created to provide grants to support organizations serving the needs of people living with and affected by HIV in Florida, Louisiana, and Texas. NMAC is partnering with AIDS United by appointing an HIV Hurricane Relief Advisory Panel of constituents from the affected regions to identify priority emergency needs for the HIV communities in each area.


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.
