Today is World AIDS Day and the international theme is Let Communities Lead. Project ACHIEVE honors all those living with HIV/AIDS and remembers all those who have passed. We have been working since 1993 with partners globally, nationally, statewide and in New York City to advance the creation of a preventive HIV Vaccine and other HIV prevention methods. We are working to understand and increase societal understanding of how stigma and all forms of oppression are limiting access to life-saving treatment and care. We are committed to elevating the voices of people of color, women, LGBTQIA+ and gender non-conforming peoples, and those struggling economically through our research studies, Community Advisory Board, community education, and recruitment/outreach efforts. Together let us continue the struggle to End AIDS and advance human rights.
