The Federal AIDS Policy Partnership (FAPP)
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 June 2010, there are 126 FAPP partner organizations.
Much of FAPP’s policy and advocacy work is accomplished through seven FAPP-affiliated working groups: AIDS Budget and Appropriations Coalition, Global AIDS Roundtable, HIV Health Care Access Working Group, HIV Housing Working Group, HIV Prevention Action Committee, Research Working Group, and Ryan White Work Group.
To become a partner organization, one must be nominated by two existing FAPP partners.
