This week, WORLD is participating in a week of action with End the Epidemics, a statewide coalition of advocates, activists and community members fighting to end the HIV, HCV & STD epidemics. Check out some of the info they’re sharing this week below, and read their letter to the California Congress’ budget committees.
From ETE: “California is at a pivotal moment in the HIV, hepatitis C (HCV), and STD epidemics. COVID-19 and shelter-in-place orders are not going to make these epidemics disappear. In fact, without access to community testing, those most at risk for these conditions, especially Black and Brown communities and LGBTQ communities, are worse off. Now more than ever it’s crucial that we continue to invest in the services that these communities rely on.”
