Advocate

Vivent Health is committed to making sure public policy reflects the changing needs of the HIV epidemic. We champion policies at the local, state and federal levels, advocating every day to protect the health of people in our communities.

We focus on:

  • Health care access and affordability
  • HIV prevention and care
  • Prescription cost and accessibility
  • Sexually-transmitted infection and hepatitis C prevention and treatment
  • PrEP access
  • Harm reduction initiatives that improve the health and lives of people who use substances
  • Housing and homelessness prevention
  • Food insecurity

It is just as vital today as it was in the early days of the epidemic for public and elected leaders to hear about why HIV prevention, care and treatment policies are important. Vivent Health is committed to building strategic relationships that bridge the partisan divide and help shape legislation and funding for programs that affect us all.
