Networks of people living with HIV in the United States have come together as the U.S. People Living with HIV Caucus (HIV Caucus) to outline our policy agenda for the federal response to the HIV epidemic. People living with HIV networks are organized formations created, led by, and accountable to the estimated 1.1 million people living with HIV in the United States. They are vehicles through which we, as people living with HIV, can define our own agenda, choose our own leaders, and speak with collective voices.
For stakeholders in the federal government, the HIV Caucus brings a unique lens, informed by lived experience, to the development of policies to ensure better care, treatment, and quality of life for people living with HIV. The networks which make up the HIV Caucus have been involved as service providers, have run programs that serve people living with HIV, and have built community-based organizations and advocacy initiatives from the ground up. We are in direct contact with tens of thousands of people living with HIV throughout the United States.
These unique abilities and access inform our work and led us to create this living policy agenda to collect our expertise into a road map for lawmakers and other key stakeholders to use in addressing the HIV epidemic at the federal level.
