Welcome to the Federal AIDS Policy Partnership

The following document has been sent to President Trump, Vice President Pence, Secretary Nominee Price, and Members of the Transition Team on behalf of the Federal AIDS Policy Partnership. The document is an ambitious transition plan for the Trump Administration to End the HIV Epidemic in the United States and Its Territories.  It was sent on behalf of 133 members and supporters of FAPP located throughout the United States.  As the document details, we now have the HIV prevention, treatment, research and other technologies and interventions necessary to end the AIDS epidemic in the United States.  The Trump Administration has the strong potential to accelerate current efforts and the document provides a plan and urges the Administration to do so.

Established in 2002, the Federal AIDS Policy Partnership (FAPP) is a national coalition of local, regional, and national organizations advocating for progressive federal HIV/AIDS legislation and policy. FAPP members are organizations that devote significant resources in support of federal HIV/AIDS public policy advocacy. FAPP is managed by a twenty-person Convening Group that consists of at-large members and a liaison from each of the affiliated working groups.

As of December 2016, there were over 125 FAPP partner organizations.

Much of FAPP’s policy and advocacy work is accomplished through six FAPP-affiliated working groups: AIDS Budget and Appropriations Coalition, HIV Health Care Access Working Group, HIV Prevention Action Committee, Research Working Group, Ryan White Work Group, and Structural Interventions Working Group.

To become a partner organization, one must be nominated by two existing FAPP partners.

There is no cost to be a member. For your organization to join FAPP, please send your completed membership application to Mike Weir.
