Whether you are talking about numbers of new diagnoses, HIV or AIDS rates, death rates, survival rates, or infection rates among women, young gay and bisexual men, African Americans, Latinos, or transgender persons, the path to ending the HIV epidemic domestically must go through the U.S. South. Join the Southern AIDS Strategy Initiative (SASI), Southern AIDS Coalition (SAC) and the HIV Prevention Justice Alliance (HIV PJA) to learn how recent CDC funding for community-based organizations (CBOs) fails to follow the HIV epidemic.

This webinar will break down SASI’s analysis on the impact and misalignment of CDC prevention funding, with a community perspective about the impact of CDC’s funding decisions upon hard-hit areas of the South.  Webinar attendees will learn about concrete action steps that you can take to make your views known to the CDC and demand they restore critical funding to CBOs in the South.

Presenters include:
Carolyn McAllaster, Director, Southern AIDS Strategy Initiative (SASI)
Valerie Mincey, Executive Director, BASIC NW Florida
