Washington, DC—On Monday, March 18, the Center for American Progress will host an event that will bring together leaders in HIV/AIDS advocacy, gay and transgender health, consumer health advocacy, and health policy to discuss how advocates and policymakers can leverage the health reform effort to help eliminate health disparities and boost health outcomes for people living with HIV or AIDS and gay and transgender communities.
Reforming America’s health system is a massive undertaking. The sheer scale of the effort means that the Affordable Care Act will touch the lives of every American—including millions of Americans who are frequently excluded from vital health insurance coverage and denied health care services. Gay and transgender people and people living with HIV or AIDS are two of the groups whose access to coverage and care has the potential to change dramatically under the health reform law.
