JOIN US ON THE ROAD TO AIDS 2012

The United States is experiencing an unprecedented focus on the domestic HIV/AIDS epidemic with the convening of AIDS 2012 in Washington, DC and the release of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and companion Implementation Plan.

Now we need you to share your thoughts, ideas, successes and challenges. This is our health, our plan, and our response. Here's a worksheet that will help you prepare your questions and testimony.

Join the conversation and RSVP today!
