Original ACTUP members, who answered that first call to action by meeting immediately : Inspiring an entire generation in their wake.
Come help them celebrate the work and retirement of Jim Eigo:
Founding member of the Treatment and Data committee of ACTUP which brought about fundamental changes in AIDS drug research and regulation -- inserting real community input into drugtrials, transforming drug availability and ultimately enabling combination therapy.
Jim returned to the floor of ACTUP in 2013, and co-founded the Prevention of HIV Action Group (PHAG), the renascent ACTUP committee which loudly and forcefully demanded embrace ofPrEP, PEP and TAsP for HIV prevention.
He helped to drive the cornerstone of prevention into the Blueprint to End AIDS in New York State.
His vision of DOHMH Sexual Health Clinics as full-service hubs of HIV prevention and care, should help to change the way folks at risk for HIV are approached, tested, and followed-up.
We will also feature the ongoing roll-out of Legacee Kares, an app for homeless and underprivileged youth focused on connecting them to human service and HIV resources. It was developedwith the help of ACTUP’s current Youth and Homelessness working group.
PLUS: Learn a new twist on a classic chant.
ACTUP! FIGHT BACK!! END AIDS!!!
