AIDS Awareness Day 2018
Despite the chilly weather we had a great turnout at this year’s event. Those in attendance were inspired by the words of our speakers and vowed to continue the fight. Thanks to everyone who made this event possible and especially to those who showed up to make your voices heard!

AIDS Awareness Day Through the Years
AIDS LIFE Campaign
The AIDS LIFE (Legislative Initiative and Funding Effort) Campaign - a program of AIDS Connecticut - is Connecticut's only statewide group that focuses solely on all of the policy-related issues impacting people living with and at high risk for HIV/AIDS - from prevention and education, including needle exchange; to supportive services; to health care, such as Medicaid and CADAP; to housing.
In addition to our advocacy work at the legislature, members of the AIDS LIFE Campaign convene meetings with key state departments such as the Department of Public Health and the Department of Social Services to work with them on a whole host of issues ranging from contracts and timely payments, CADAP, Medicaid changes (e.g. prescription and provider visit co-pays), as well as federal issues such as the HOPWA (Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS) housing program, Ryan White funds, and other pertinent topics that arise.
