ACT UP Paris



Act Up-Paris a été fondé en 1989 en raison de l'ampleur de la menace représentée par le sida et la faiblesse de la lutte engagée par le gouvernement. L'association est indépendante des autres groupes Act Up. Act Up est une association de personnes affectées par le VIH qui voient dans le sida avant tout une question politique.

The Connecticut HIV Consumer Council

The mission of the HIV Consumer Council is to educate and increase understanding and awareness of who we are and to clarify HIV consumer issues. We are here to listen to the issues of persons infected and affected by HIV/AIDS and to be our own voice, to advocate for our own needs. We endeavor to identify gaps in HIV related services in the area, and will help address these gaps either in legislative or local arenas. We seek to represent the diversity of those infected with HIV and are here to support each other. Although we have many faces, we have one voice.
