Join an Oct. 7 Conference Call -- Share Your Ideas for Making the U.S. National HIV/AIDS Strategy Work for Women

October 5, 2009

Imagine a National AIDS Strategy that truly works for women. A National AIDS Strategy that prevents new HIV infections in women; increases women's access to care, and reduces disparities for women affected by HIV. What would it look like?

We know you have a few ideas -- and we can't wait to hear 'em!

Join the U.S. Positive Women's Network next Wednesday October 7th for an update on the National HIV/AIDS Strategy process, ways you can have an impact and input, and a special discussion of A Capitol Offense: The Gender Dimensions of Washington DC's HIV/AIDS Crisis, a new report released by The Women's Collective in Washington, DC. Read the full report at: http://womenscollective.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=190&Itemid=1.
