2014 Summit Concurrent Session: Ending HIV/AIDS in Indiana: The Role of Philanthropy
When the U.S. government committed to accelerating HIV prevention and care through the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and HIV Continuum of Care Initiative, The Health Foundation of Greater Indianapolis responded. During 2012 and 2013, the Foundation shifted its pattern of grant making to align with this goal, focusing on HIV treatment-as-prevention as a primary strategy and increasing grants to programs that work with the most at-risk populations in promoting the continuum of care. Last fall, after a gap analysis of HIV in Indiana, the Foundation committed an unprecedented amount of money toward grantee capacity building and an advocacy campaign. This session will explore what three grantees—the largest public hospital in Indiana, the largest ASO in the state, and the largest minority ASO—are doing to build capacity and increase their ability to test and link people living with HIV/AIDS with primary care, especially those hardest to reach, including transgender positives.
Moderator: Katherine Campbell Nagler, The Health Foundation of Greater Indianapolis. Panelists: Tom Bartenbach, The Damien Center; Dr. John Kunzer, Eskenazi Medical Group/Health Center; and Marissa Miller, Brothers United
