At AIDS Action, we advocate for public policy that bolsters prevention and supports people already living with HIV/AIDS. We do this with certain core principles in mind:
- HIV prevention should be evidence-based, and public policy should only support the research and development of evidence-based approaches.
- People living with HIV/AIDS should have control over the disclosure of their health status, as HIV stigma and discrimination still persist.
- Public funding should be used to help treat people living with this disease.
We will post calls for action and opportunities to have your voice heard here. Please sign up to receive email notifications of Action Alerts so we can keep you informed.
Victory! Massachusetts passes first-in-the-nation mandate to cover treatment for HIV-associated lipodystrophy. Help us make sure that the Governor signs it.
On July 31, a couple of minutes before midnight, the Legislature passed An Act Relative to HIV-Associated Lipodystrophy Syndrome Treatment! This is a momentous event, but we’re not done yet.
Governor Baker has ten days to sign the bill into law or to veto it and deny healthcare to those who need it most. Please take action now and ask Governor Baker to sign An Act Relative to HIV-Associated Lipodystrophy Syndrome Treatment into law today!
Right now, there are long-term survivors across Commonwealth suffering from lipodystrophy, a devastating and debilitating side-effect of early HIV medications, who cannot access the care that they need.
Act today and ask Governor Baker to sign this Act into law and provide sound and compassionate health care for people with HIV in Massachusetts.
