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, AR, 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 2014-2015 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.
