The HIV/AIDS epidemic has seen tremendous progress since its peak in the 1980's, but the spread of the virus will not end if we abondon efforts now.
As the opioid crisis has reached epidemic levels, we have also seen a rise in cases of hepatitis B, C, and HIV, threatening the progress made by ASO's such as AIDS Action. Overdoses have claimed the lives of more than 15,800 residents since 2000, with a 421% increase in deaths between 2000 and 2017.
We are in a state of crisis, and we need your help.
AIDS Action is part of a small but fortunately growing number of programs across the state, desperately trying to keep individuals alive and help them achieve better health outcomes.
Access, AIDS Action’s drug-user health program, provides services including HIV/HCV/STI testing, health education and navigation, risk-reduction counseling, overdose education, Narcan distribution, street and community outreach, behavioral health services, support groups, drop-in services, safer sex and drug use supplies, and even limited nursing services.
Your support of AIDS Action saves lives, plain and simple.
On Sunday, June 3rd, we will walk in honor of each life that has been affected, in celebration of the progress that has been made, and in urgency for the work that still needs to be done.
Join us as we stand with our community against this devastating epidemic. Together, we can make a difference.
Thank you for your support!
