Living the American Dream? A Reality of Poverty for HIV+ Women: Webinar and Blog Series

April 20, 2012

Count HIV+ Women in the American Dream! April 17th is Tax Day, usually a stressful day as Americans recount their income, receipts, and deductibles. For women living with HIV, Tax Day can be a powerful reminder of loss of employment, disability status, and required low income eligibility levels needed to keep benefits like health care and ADAP. Poverty can lead to an HIV diagnosis, and for many women an HIV diagnosis is a sentence to a lifetime of poverty.

Join U.S. Positive Women's Network, a project of WORLD (Women Organized to Respond to Life-threatening Diseases), as we explore the impact of economics policies, gender, and poverty on a woman's quality of life and overall health.

When: April 23rd 10:30a-12:30p PST/1:30p-3:30p EST
