Public Policy Council
We bring together organizations from across the United States to advocate for people living with or vulnerable to HIV and the organizations that serve them.
The Public Policy Council operates as a standing committee of the AIDS United board of trustees, informing the policy priorities of the organization. Your organization can benefit greatly from joining AIDS United’s Public Policy Council. Our experienced policy and government affairs staff can help you reach members of Congress and executive branch staff. You’ll also be adding your voice to the growing movement to end the HIV epidemic in the United States.
