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.

Relief, Recovery & Resilience: Navigating Pandemics in Communities of Faith 


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.

You can help. Your donation will support programming, like the Relief, Recovery and Resilience webinar series, designed to build the resilience of grassroots organizations across the country as they directly serve people and populations at greatest risk.
