Back to HIV Rally
Monday, March 21 @ 11am | SF City Hall
Please join the Harvey Milk LGBTQ Democratic Club, San Francisco Principles 2020, the HIV Advocacy Network, and Ward 86 at the steps of San Francisco City Hall on Monday, March 21, 2022, at 11am, to urge the City to make the fight against HIV a priority. 37.7 million people worldwide living with HIV means HIV/AIDS is STILL a Fucking Plague, and Silence STILL Equals Death!
While San Francisco has been a beacon of hope for the HIV Community for many decades, in the last couple of years, the City has failed the HIV Community.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, we have seen the following alarming trends:
- HIV testing is down by 44% from 2019.
- Rates of viral suppression have dropped from 75% to 70%.
- Among homeless persons living with HIV, only 20% have reached viral suppression, a decrease from 50% in 2019.
- PrEP use has decreased, leading to potential new HIV transmissions.
- During times of lockdowns, clinic visits decreased, interrupting testing and early detection and treatment.
- The City's long-term survivors of HIV/AIDS still lack adequate access to deeply affordable housing, harm reduction, mental health care, social housing, and economic assistance.
2021 marked the 40th year of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. 40 years with no cure and no vaccine. As we enter the 41st year of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, the City of San Francisco MUST recommit to treating HIV/AIDS as an urgent public health issue and must recommit funds to make up for recent losses. RSVP here.
Want to get more involved in the fight for the HIV community? Join the HIV Caucus virtually on Friday, March 18, from 3pm to 4pm. Register here. Reach out to [email protected] with any questions!
