The retirement announcement of Phill Wilson, longtime President and CEO of the Black AIDS Institute launches a new vision and direction for “Preparing For The Next Generation Of The Black HIV/AIDS Response.”
Founded in May of 1999, the Black AIDS Institute is the only national HIV/AIDS think tank focused exclusively on Black people. The Institute’s Mission is to stop the AIDS pandemic in Black communities by engaging and mobilizing Black institutions and individuals in unapologetically Black efforts to confront HIV.
Today, as part of a new strategic plan to prepare for the next generation of Black HIV/AIDS response, the Black AIDS Institute announced the retirement of long time President and CEO, Phill Wilson, later this year.
This year’s National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness day commemoration is bittersweet for me. I have been involved in efforts to fight the HIV/AIDS pandemic for more than thirty-five years.Today, I am announcing that later this year I will be stepping down as the Black AIDS Institute’s President and CEO, where I have had the privilege of serving for the last 19 years.
As part of a new strategic plan to prepare for the next generation of Black HIV/AIDS response, the Black AIDS Institute is announcing several changes within the organization, including the retirement of its longtime president and CEO, Phill Wilson.
In order for a movement to endure, there must be a plan for the future. National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) on February 7, 2018, is a great time to assess the state of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Black America and plan a forward-thinking response. This year, the Black AIDS Institute is celebrating the day by laying the groundwork for the next generation of HIV/AIDS response in Black communities.
The new leader of the Black AIDS Institute will join an organization whose mission is critical, whose work is life-changing, and whose platform is unique. The opportunity to lead this vital national organization to new levels of growth and effectiveness in partnership with local and national public health and social justice organizations will be a primary motivator for the successful candidate.
