About the Agenda
For the first time in the history of this epidemic, community based organizations, health departments, direct service providers, researchers, advocates, public health representatives, people living with HIV/AIDS and many others have come together to develop the Latino/Hispanic AIDS Action Agenda, a national health and prevention policy document that responds to the crisis. On January 29-30, 2008 in Washington, D.C. people from across the nation including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands will come together to discuss at length the solutions needed to overcome the HIV/AIDS crisis faced by our communities. Together, as a community, we will not only develop an agenda that will represent our definition of what the underlying problems are but we will also recommend and prioritize the changes that we see necessary to reverse this epidemic of indifference and injustice.
