Capitol Hill Briefing on Latinos and HIV/AIDS
As part of the Kaiser Family Foundation’s ongoing effort to raise awareness about critical issues related to HIV/AIDS, we co-hosted a Capitol Hill briefing with the National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD) on Latinos and HIV/AIDS. Honorary co-sponsors of the briefing included Representatives Hilda Solis (D-CA), Ciro Rodriquez (D-TX), and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL). At the briefing, facts on the impact of the epidemic were presented that were based on a new chartbook and fact sheet developed by the Kaiser Family Foundation. In addition, NASTAD discussed its new report “Addressing HIV/AIDS: Latinos Perspectives and Policy Recommendation.” This document provides recommendations on how to develop programs and policies to effectively address the AIDS epidemic among Latinos.
