HIV Advocacy Network

The grassroots power of the individual, working in coalition with others, is a critical force in ensuring a compassionate and effective response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. To that end, San Francisco AIDS Foundation runs and mobilizes the HIV Advocacy Network (HAN) to engage community members directly in our advocacy work.

HAN recruits, trains and organizes people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS to actively encourage elected officials and government decision-makers to approve sound public policy in response to the epidemic.

As critical moments specific to HIV/AIDS policy issues move forward, HAN briefs its members using concise alerts that make it quick and easy for them to communicate their positions to decision-makers.
