What Are HIV Community Members Most Proud Of?

I'm proud of the way several community organizations have developed resources and interventions for their particular populations that seem to really engage people. I'm thinking particularly of the Black Treatment Advocates Network and SisterLove, for example, that have been just truly landmark interventions, again, in their populations. There are no one-size-fits-all solutions -- especially if we're talking about getting people motivated to get tested and get into care, it absolutely has to be tailored to the local population -- and probably delivered by people who look like me, sound like me, have lifestyles like me -- and that's a huge challenge.
