WHICH INITIATIVE DO YOU WANT TO SUPPORT?

People in the South

Southerners have the highest rates of new HIV diagnoses and die at higher rates of HIV. Funds will support initiatives led by communities most impacted by the HIV epidemic in the South to provide prevention, treatment, care and support programs, and policy, advocacy and movement building.

Black GBQ Men

Black men who have sex with men are more impacted by HIV than any other group in the United States. Funds will give community leaders tools to create systems of support and to break down barriers, such as stigma, lack of services, and insufficient awareness of PrEP, U=U and other opportunities to advance their health and well-being.

Transgender Communities

Transgender and gender-nonconforming people — in particular, Black and Brown trans women — are disproportionately affected by intersecting epidemics from HIV to homelessness and fatal violence. Transphobia, stigma and systemic discrimination heighten this vulnerability. Funds will help community-led groups raise up and connect trans leaders to address these challenges and improve health outcomes.

Health Care Access Expansion

Nearly half the people living with HIV in the United States rely for care on initiatives such as the Ryan White Program, and about 40% rely on Medicaid. Funds help promote Medicaid expansion to more states and support initiatives that provide people with primary medical care, essential support services and medications.

Relief, Recovery & Resilience Fund

This fund meets the immediate and emergent needs of people living with and vulnerable to HIV in places affected by natural disasters and health emergencies. AIDS United was able to quickly provide more than $317,000 in the first six months of the COVID-19 pandemic, helping community-based organizations provide access to HIV care, housing, food and other essentials.

Harm Reduction Interventions

Over 10% of HIV diagnoses in the United States are attributed to injection drug use and nearly 72,000 people died of drug overdose last year. Funds will help reduce the health, psychosocial and socioeconomic disparities experienced by people who use drugs by supporting evidence-informed approaches to prevent the transmission of HIV, increase overdose prevention and reversal efforts, and connect people who use drugs to comprehensive prevention, treatment and support services.
