Agency Profile: AIDS Alabama
AIDS Alabama hosts annual consumer education training sessions for HIV-positive persons throughout the state of Alabama. These training sessions serve as a way for the HIV-positive community to be engaged in advocacy efforts. By training HIV-positive consumers on how to effectively communicate and educate relevant stakeholders and decision makers on HIV/AIDS issues, we ensure that Alabama’s HIV-positive population maintains a vibrant voice statewide.
AIDS Alabama provides a host of opportunities for interested HIV-positive consumers to communicate to their elected officials and relevant decision makers. Opportunities include letter writing campaigns, online communication, and face-to-face meetings and events.
AIDS Alabama’s advocacy efforts culminate in providing HIV-positive Alabamians with the opportunity to mobilize and raise their voices as a concerned group. The agency hosts an annual Media Day event in Montgomery, providing a direct channel for HIV-positive persons to engage their elected officials in discussion about HIV/AIDS issues.
