The HHS Partnership Center and White House Office for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships are hosting an evening HIV/AIDS webcast, live from the White House this Thursday at 5:00 p.m. ET. This event provides an opportunity for your congregation or community organization to host a watch party and join in the discussion on preventing and responding to HIV/AIDS in our communities, and supporting individuals living with HIV/AIDS.
The National HIV/AIDS Strategy calls for the Federal Centers for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships to actively engage faith communities to address HIV/AIDS and promote prevention and early treatment.
We hope you will be able to join us for this discussion. If you have a question for a member of the panel, please email Partnerships@hhs.gov by 12:00pm on Thursday, May 26, 2011. Be sure to include, your name, organization and location.
