Southern AIDS Coalition

Index of articles from Southern AIDS Coalition

Southern AIDS Coalition logo The Southern AIDS Coalition, was formed in 2001 as a membership organization of government representatives, corporations, and community advocates. This unique partnership is borne from the burgeoning numbers of people whose new infection rates are much higher than the rest of the U.S. population. Federal funds do not meet the needs of those living with HIV in the South and are not equally distributed across the country.

The HIV/AIDS outbreak is at the state of emergency in the southern United States. The disparate impact of this epidemic on southern citizens -- especially within communities of color -- must be addressed. The Southern AIDS Coalition works to provide southern citizens an opportunity for adequate HIV/AIDS prevention information, treatment, and health care.
