Health Equtiy

“Just as HIV research expertise paved the way for a COVID vaccine, local and community efforts to address HIV disparities have also been instrumental in predicting and suggesting ways to address COVID-19 disparities,” Millet said in comments provided for this article. “These range from identifying the scope of the problem and ways to address it through national and local strategies; to engaging most-impacted communities as equal partners to find viable solutions; and finding ways to guarantee access to new health innovations for marginalized groups in the U.S. and abroad.”

Health disparities in HIV based on race and ethnicity have been with us since the start of the epidemic. Community-based advocacy to address such disparities is equally long-lived. The year 2020, however, brought these inequities to levels of public prominence never seen before. The two epochal even...

2021 USCHA MOVED TO VIRTUAL FORMAT DUE TO COVID

“This is not the announcement we wanted to make,” said Paul Kawata, Executive Director of NMAC, in an August 10 email sent out announcing the decision. “We were very hopeful that we could hold an in-person USCHA this year. However, the health and safety of our constituents must be our primary concern. "

The 2021 U.S. Conference on HIV/AIDS (USCHA) has gone virtual once again, for the second year in a row. The yearly event brings together people from community-based organizations dedicated to HIV work and is organized by the D.C.-based non-profit NMAC (formerly the National Minority AIDS Council).

Powerful words from Susan Cole-Haley during the closing ceremony today of #IAS2021:

“We cannot end AIDS until we end inequalities... Scientists, you need to recruit more women. Do not think we are passive or victims; we, like all people living with #HIV, must be at the center of all decisions about our lives.

“...We must bridge the digital divide... government recognize the importance of internet access is important to public health. If all communities cannot access the benefit of public health, then the results will be severely limited.”

HIV & Aging Act sails through legislature; awaits Newsom’s signature

California’s state legislature has just passed the HIV and Aging Act, which now awaits Gov. Gavin Newsom's signature.

“The HIV & Aging Act updates the Welfare and Institutions Code to ensure older people living with HIV—who are likely to turn to government and community-based services due to multiple comorbidities, behavioral and mental health issues and limited social support—have access to the programs and services administered through the California Department of Aging. The legislation is co-authored by Senators Toni Atkins (D-San Diego), Susan Talamantes Eggman (D-Stockton), Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Assemblymembers Sabrina Cervantes (D-Corona), Alex Lee (D-San Jose), Evan Low (D-Campbell) and Chris Ward (D-San Diego) and co-sponsored by APLA Health, Equality California, the Los Angeles LGBT Center and SAGE.

“...California will become only the second state—after Illinois in 2019—to designate older adults living with HIV as a population of “greatest social need.”

Juneteenth celebrates freedom. None of us are free until we all are, which is why we must work every day toward racial justice. TPAN honors this principle in our everyday work. In our fight to end AIDS, empower lives affected by HIV, and to safeguard the health of our LGBTQ and HIV-affected communities, we see how racism and continued disparities harm us all. Juneteenth is a powerful reminder that every step toward freedom and equality must include everyone.

Many of us never expected to live this long, but here we are. June 5 marks 40 years since the first five reported cases that would come to be called AIDS. In that time, we’ve lost much, endured much, accomplished much... and lived to tell about it. Much more still lies ahead—opportunities, new developments, as well as yet to be resolved issues and challenges. We’ve survived, but we all deserve to thrive. #HLTSAD

Hepatitis A, B, C and D are all different diseases, since they are caused by four different viruses. Only Hepatitis A doesn’t cause a long-term infection, while the rest become chronic and lead to serious health problems. Many people don’t realize they have a form of hepatitis until they get tested. Left undiagnosed and untreated, hepatitis can seriously damage the liver, leading to cancer and cirrhosis. #HepTestingDay

Its National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day. A great day to be aging, do you agree?
Plus-Friends HIV Social Network, together we are creating the next generation, global HIV community where we connect, celebrate, discover, grow, speak out, speak up, share, learn, teach and perhaps even discover the love of our life. Plus Friends is free to all members and will always remain so. Join Us www.plus-friends.com
In honor of National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day (#NHAAAD), here’s a selection of pictures submitted over the years from older folks who’ve been living with HIV for our anti-stigma campaign, A Day with HIV. Today, an ever growing number of people living with HIV—more than half now—are over age 50. If you’re living with HIV, you’re aging with HIV, something few thought would happen. This year, A Day with HIV is Monday, Sept. 23. Capture a moment of that day and share your story. Your photo could wind up in the next issue of Positively Aware.
Look for us at #2019usca—we're at Booth #112. See you there!
Positively Aware, Thank you for sending 30 copies of your issue, “Changing How We Age With HIV.” Every member of my support group, #RESTART, will receive a copy and the floor will be open for discussion and feedback- great job!
I have been receiving your magazine for years. I think it's wonderful--great information on new & existing drugs for HIV. Looking at the photos of fine people dealing with HIV. I live in Newark, N.J. I am a recipient of St. Clare's Homes Property. While it is great to c photos of dashing men and women--very healthy==face fillers, which we can't afford, have jobs--we don't-have nice clothes--we don't--we get clothes from charities--we r dealing with drug issues-housing issues- rent problems- food problems-prescription costs. We have wear & tear on our faces & clothes unlike your photos. St. Clare's funded by the City? Government? We get help with SOME with our rent and food. We have great case managers who look out for us. A host of problem solving issues by a great cast of people. It would be nice if your magazine could shed some light on our programs and maybe get better funding. No one knows I am writing this. Much more information about St. Clare's I don't have but would be willing to find out for you, if u can help shed light on St. Clare's and it's wonderful staff. Thank you.
AID Upstate I work with newly diagnosed clients who often think their life is over. I keep track in my office to show them life is NOT over. Kudos to all the long term survivors who decided their life was not over!
Jeff Berry and Rick Guasco, THANKS SO SO MUCH for your support, in so many ways, starting as human beings. I know it has been a slow start, but I really hope we collaborate in better ways, looking forward to it. LOVE from me and the HIV LONG TERM SURVIVORS group.

"The country has a small window of opportunity to curb the rise of what is now the fastest growing HIV epidemic in the Asia-Pacific region. The Filipino Government must convert this political call to action into implementation of tried and tested, community-led, effective harm reduction policies that can reach all at-risk populations. Stigma against PWID, le***an, gay, bis*xual, transgender, questioning, and inters*x people, and people living with HIV can and must be prevented. Early testing, access to reproductive health, s*x education and antiretroviral treatment should be facilitated. The Philippines must act, today, or risk losing the fight against HIV." https://www.facebook.com/HIVGET/posts/1783221498374690
