Our People, Our Problem, Our Solution

Our mission is to stop the AIDS pandemic in Black communities by engaging and mobilizing Black institutions and individuals in efforts to confront HIV.

We do this by interpreting public and private sector HIV policies, conducting trainings, offering technical assistance, disseminating information and providing advocacy mobilization from a uniquely and unapologetically Black point of view.

Programs

As the nation’s only Black think tank focused exclusively on ending HIV, our programs feature a diverse range of activities. From national in-person training and webinars, to a timely focus on Black healthcare access, we have a holistic approach to fighting the epidemic.

Black Healthcare Access

The Black Healthcare Access program works to ensure that Black Americans are educated about the Affordable Care Act, how this national health policy has worked for our communities and our need to fight for continued coverage.
