Ending the HIV Epidemic

We are at a crisis point in Indianapolis (TGA) which the CDC and HHS has declared an HIV hotspot.  In 2021, there were 279 new HIV diagnosis which was a 40.2% increase over 2020 (199).  Black people were disproportionally impacted with 48.8% of these new HIV diagnoses (and another 10.1% were Latinx).  Young Adults from 20-34 continue to be most at risk for HIV with rates at least twice that of other age groups, and it is estimated 1 in 7 people living with HIV do not know they have been infected.

Ending the HIV Epidemic will require diverse, insightful, and innovative leaders willing to admit to past failings while simultaneously embracing promising new approaches to education, outreach, support, and care.  

Broadway partners with BU Wellness, the Marion County Public Health Department, Shalom Health Care Center,  StepUp, and the  Hoosier International AIDS Conference Scholarship Fund to provide HIV education for youth and adults, as well, as HIV testing and peer support for people living with HIV.  Special thanks to The Indianapolis Foundation for supporting this important work.  
The Hoosier IAC Scholarship Fund allows community members to attend the International AIDS Conference (held every 2 years) to be inspired, educated, and equipped to lead the fight to End the HIV Epidemic in Indiana.  People Living with HIV (PLHIV), African Americans,  students (18+), and young adults are particularly encouraged to apply.   We invite you to join us!  For more information go to www.indianaiac.com.
