Positive Action: Fighting HIV/AIDS in the South

Positive Action—a global program that funds projects enabling grassroots action in the HIV/AIDS community—was launched in 1992. Today, ViiV Healthcare has focused the program to address gaps in care and treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS.

In 2010, ViiV launched the Positive Action Southern Initiative. The initiative targets projects supporting HIV/AIDS efforts in African-American and Latino populations in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi.

These seven grantees were selected this year to receive funding over the next two years:

Aid to Inmate Mothers
Montgomery, Alabama

Atlanta Harm Reduction Coalition
Atlanta, Georgia

Family Service of Greater Baton Rouge
Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Grace House
Jackson, Mississippi

Positive Impact
Atlanta, Georgia

Southwest Louisiana AIDS Council
Lake Charles, Louisiana

Union Mission’s J.C. Lewis Primary Health Care Center
Savannah, Georgia

Watch representatives from Aid to Inmate Mothers, Family Service of Greater Baton Rouge, Positive Impact and Southwest Louisiana AIDS Council at the 2010 United States Conference on AIDS in Orlando, Florida, tell POZ about their programs.
