The POZ 100: 11 to 20

11. Seth Berkley, MD Tasked with finding a vaccine to end this bloody pandemic, Berkley, president and CEO of the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, has a childlike enthusiasm for the science of HIV/AIDS. Tirelessly supporting those who seek a preventive solution [or vaccine], Berkley is scary smart and refreshingly down-to-earth. His energy and conviction that we can find a vaccine are, well, contagious.

12. Nancy Bernstine Understanding the important link between having a safe place to lay your head, keep your pills and stay warm and dry, the executive director of the National AIDS Housing Coalition in Washington, DC, advocates for real roofs for people with HIV, not houses made out of cardboard, or cards.

13. Leigh Blake Founder and president of Keep a Child Alive (KCA), Blake has saved the lives of millions of African children who have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS. She produced the Red Hot + Blue CDs to benefit AIDS and was the executive director of Artists Against AIDS Worldwide. With the help of Alicia Keys, KCA has modernized the model of charitable organizations and ensures the health of women and children stigmatized by HIV/AIDS.

14. Don Blanchon As the executive director of the Whitman-Walker Clinic in Washington, DC, Blanchon has evolved the community health center from a drop-in point for health emergencies to a model for modern HIV outreach and a continuum of care. Offering mobile testing vans, support groups, a pharmacy, dental care and more, Whitman-Walker sets today's gold standard for HIV/AIDS care.

15. Susan Blumenthal, MPA The former assistant surgeon general and two-star rear admiral is a renowned national and global health expert. She currently serves as the director of the Health and Medicine Program at the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress and as senior policy and medical advisor to amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research. When she leads, many follow.

16. Larry Bryant The onetime all-American football star now works as the national field organizer for Housing Works' Federal Advocacy Office in Washington, DC. We'd like to see more people pass the ball to Bryant. He's quick, he's tough- and he knows how to beeline it to the end zone.

17. Christine Campbell The vice president of national advocacy and organizing at Housing Works oversees the group's support of the Campaign to End AIDS. She's here, she's there, she is everywhere.

18. Scott Campbell Handing out money raised by the Elton John AIDS Foundation to support innovative HIV prevention programs and efforts to eliminate stigma may sound fun and easy. But when you have executive director Campbell's discerning taste and insistence on measurable outcomes, the job is harder than you might think. Fortunately for the recipients of the Elton John AIDS Foundation's generosity, Campbell knows precisely what he is looking for.

19. Guillermo Chacón The president and CEO of the Latino Commission on AIDS helps lead the powerful organization to protect Latinos nationwide. Thanks to Chacón, we might raise awareness of HIV/AIDS in the Latino community before it's too late.

20. Allan Clear The executive director of the Harm Reduction Coalition has long fought for the rights and safety of injection drug users. When the debate around syringe exchange got heated, Clear was sharply on point-syringe exchange is now legal.
