Latino Commission on AIDS

Latino Commission on AIDS began its work in the region in 2007, developing opportunities for the Latino community’s voice to be heard at stakeholder tables and enhancing visibility of Latino issues as they relate to access to health care. The Latino Commission on AIDS is the only organization that has made a long-term investment in the Southeast to work specifically with the Latino community to promote changes in two areas that impact people living with and affected by HIV: immigration and health care access.

The Latino Commission on AIDS coordinates the Latinos in the Deep South Program to recruit community members and emerging professionals for the Dennis de Leon Sustainable Leadership Institute to gain the knowledge and skills to advocate for HIV-related health equity, racial, social justice issues; grow the Alianza LGBT Latinx by increasing the visibility of Latinx advocates at policy tables; and develop state-specific tools to be disseminated to our southern network.
