On the eve of World AIDS Day, the Latino Commission on AIDS reflected on the theme, “Getting to Zero”, which gives us an opportunity to assess where we are and what we need to do to reach an AIDS free generation.
On December 1st we must honor all of those that passed due to AIDS, and celebrate the progress we have made in advancing treatment, challenging stigma and discrimination, promoting prevention to decrease new HIV infections, and empowering those living with HIV and AIDS to live longer and healthier lives.
The Latino Commission on AIDS remains committed to advocate for policies, resources, and community partnerships to move toward an AIDS-free generation, addressing the impact of viral hepatitis and the importance of culturally relevant Medicaid services in all 50 States, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands and Washington, DC.
“The Latino Commission will continue to address the health challenges that create barriers for our communities to access HIV testing, treatment and care, especially in the south of the United States where the impact of HIV is invisible and more than ever we need partnerships to overcome so many obstacles. United we can.” Stated Guillermo Chacón, President of the Latino Commission on AIDS
