About ACT NOW: END AIDS

ACT NOW: END AIDS (ANEA) is a national coalition of community-based organizations, health departments, and national organizations committed to ending AIDS as an epidemic in the United States. The coalition hosts learning collaboratives; works to have Ending the Epidemic (EtE) become part of the national discourse with key decision makers; and supports city, state, and county health departments across the country with technical assistance in the writing and implementation of EtE plans and processes. ANEA’s Steering Committee is comprised of leading HIV advocacy organizations including Housing Works, Sister Love, and Treatment Action Group.
