FIGHTING FOR HEALTH EQUITY

NMAC believes that all people living with HIV or at risk should have affordable and fair access to high-quality health care. That’s why it fights tirelessly for racial justice and health equity within communities of color. NMAC, formerly the National Minority AIDS Council, was founded over 30 years ago. Today it promotes treatment and prevention, trains community organizations, inspires leadership, and advocates for people living with HIV. NMAC “leads with race” – that means it doesn’t shy away from exploring the impact of race on health equity. In the same spirit of acknowledging diversity, NMAC wants people with disabilities to feel included and served. Together with eSSENTIAL Accessibility, NMAC is ensuring that its online content is barrier-free, and is offering downloadable assistive technology to make it easier for people with disabilities to go online.
