Our initiatives

The foundation of our work consists of three pillars:

Our programs

 

AIDS United is part of the evaluation and technical assistance provider for the Black Women First Initiative, in partnership with The University of Massachusetts at Lowell, Boston University Center for Innovation in Social Work & Health, and Impact Marketing + Communications. The initiative supports the design, implementation and evaluation of bundled evidence-informed interventions for Black women living with HIV.

 

We provide community-based organizations with the help and tools they need to address the HIV epidemic in their communities more effectively.

 

We invest in organizations led by and serving transgender and gender-nonconforming people, as well as Black gay, bisexual, queer and same-gender-loving men to improve HIV-related health and improve HIV-related policies.

 

PACT empowers communities disproportionately impacted by HIV through innovative approaches to distributing knowledge, health messaging and tools they need to make healthy decisions for themselves and those they love.

 

POP amplifies grassroots organizing by bolstering meaningful, community-led leadership development of people living with HIV to reduce HIV-related stigma, raise education and awareness among policymakers, and thus indirectly improve outcomes along the continuum of care.

 

We support innovative HIV programs to bolster the capacity of community-led efforts on HIV prevention, HIV treatment access, and public policy and advocacy in Puerto Rico.

We work to help meet the immediate and urgent needs of those of us living with and vulnerable to HIV in regions affected by urgent crises like earthquakes and hurricanes, and now the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

We focus on the needs of individuals and communities affected by HIV in the South around three primary areas: prevention, care and support, and policy, advocacy and movement building.

We support organizations providing comprehensive health services to people who use drugs. We advocate for federal funding for syringe services programs and state legalization efforts for syringe access.
