Registration Now Open for AIDSWatch 2009!!!

April 9, 2009

Registration is now open for the 17th annual AIDSWatch. Come to Washington, DC, April 27-29 and tell Congress that this is our year! Change provides an opportunity to develop an outcome-driven strategy to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States.

Change is on the minds of everyone here in Washington D.C. For the AIDS movement, change presents an opportunity for comprehensive and quality access to health care and treatment for all people living with HIV, reducing HIV incidence by at least half by funding programs that teach proven evidence-based strategies for reducing HIV-risk, and investing in innovative research to uncover new prevention technologies while aggressively advancing our efforts to once and for all identify a cure for HIV/AIDS.

We invite you to join hundreds of AIDS advocates from across the country who will be traveling to the nation's capital to speak to their elected officials with a strong voice, united in support of a solid federal commitment to AIDS programs. Now is an especially important time in Washington as the Obama Administration and the new Congress develop their first appropriations packages and consider issues such as health care reform.

Please join AIDSWatch, the largest annual constituent-based federal HIV/AIDS advocacy and education event in the U.S. Participants include people living with HIV and AIDS, their families, friends, care providers, and other advocates. AIDSWatch is a project of the National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA). Many other national organizations concerned about HIV and AIDS also participate in the planning, funding and support of this event. AIDSWatch activities are designed to complement regional and national administrative, appropriations, and legislative initiatives ongoing throughout the year. This project depends on the generous contributions of those concerned with HIV and AIDS in America. Please join NAPWA or make a donation today to sustain the voice of positive leadership.
