HIV & Health Equity

HIV disproportionately affects members of the LGBTQ+ communities of color, particularly cisgender Black and Latino gay and bisexual, transgender women, and Black women. We are committed to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic and HIV-related stigma.

Despite advances in HIV prevention and treatment, more than 1.1 million people in the U.S. live with HIV and approximately 38,000 new diagnoses each year.

At the Human Rights Campaign, we are committed to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic and HIV-related stigma through strategic partnerships with the HIV and public health community — including community-based organizations, health departments, and national partners — to design, implement and evaluate multi-year strategies addressing the epidemic; utilizing storytelling to advocate, engage and mobilize communities most impacted by HIV and AIDS in the U.S., including young gay and bisexual men and transgender women of color while focusing on public education and research opportunities.
