"This is a game-changing opportunity for our grantee communities and the private sector to come together to make a real difference in the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS," said Mark Ishaug, AIDS United President and CEO. "The 2:1 match requirement of the SIF makes this a significant -- and expanding -- investment in the 'healthy futures' of our nation's communities hardest hit by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. These new partnerships enable strategic, innovative, community-driven interventions that change how we invest in improving the health outcomes of the people living with HIV/AIDS in the United States."
