Conversations With HRSA Leaders About PLWH Leadership, Housing and More From 2016 Ryan White Conference
August 26, 2016
Federal HIV leaders from HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau (HRSA/HAB) joined us to share highlights with us on Thursday, August 25, the third day of the 2016 National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care and Treatment.
HRSA's Antigone Dempsey chatted with Douglas Brooks about the importance of public leadership by people living with HIV in our national response. Antigone is the Director of Policy and Data at HRSA/HAB and Douglas is the former Director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy and now serves as Senior Director of Community Engagement at Gilead Sciences. They discussed the National HIV/AIDS Strategy's call to promote public leadership of people living with HIV as one of the key recommended actions to reduce HIV-related stigma and discrimination. They also touched on a related new HRSA/HAB initiative as well as the issues of disclosure and mentorship. Watch their video here.
