Register Now for AIDSWatch 2017
January 5, 2017
AIDSWatch, presented by The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, is the nation's largest annual constituent-based national HIV/AIDS advocacy event, bringing together hundreds of people living with HIV and their allies to meet with Members of Congress and to educate them about the important issues at stake for people living with HIV/AIDS in the United States. AIDSWatch is implemented as a partnership between AIDS United, the Treatment Access Expansion Project and the U.S. People Living With HIV Caucus. AIDSWatch 2017 will take place March 27 - March 28, 2017 in Washington D.C.
We now have the knowledge and tools to end AIDS in America. We can successfully treat those living with HIV and stop new infections. However, meeting this goal will require substantial scale-up of solutions, removal of barriers, and real leadership. There must be cooperation and a commitment to sound policy and sufficient investment. There must be collaboration -- across the political aisle, between federal, state, and local governments, and between the public and private sectors. We can make the unprecedented opportunity of ending AIDS in America a reality by basing solutions on science and basic human rights, and by providing the resources, policies, and programs necessary to ensure that HIV prevention, care, treatment, and support services are widely available.
AIDSWatch scholarship applications are no longer being accepted.
