1st Annual Gathering of Funders Concerned About AIDS



Wednesday, September 16, 2009 – Friday, September 18, 2009

Washington, D.C.
Dear Colleagues:
As the date draws near for our first-ever Annual Gathering, we will continue to share news of exciting speaker and session developments. 

Visit our website 
today for the full agenda! 

In this first update, we are pleased to spotlight one of our Opening Institutes:

“Reproductive Rights of Women with HIV and AIDS,” Wednesday, Sep. 16, 2-5 PM.

This July fourteen organizations working on issues related to human rights, women and HIV/AIDS submitted a series of policy recommendations to the Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP) and related agencies to help guide their efforts to achieve better outcomes for women living with and affected by HIV. The report, entitled, “Critical Issues for Women and HIV: Health Policy and the Development of a National AIDS Strategy,” is a product of a convening of Ford Foundation grantees. Click here to read the full report, and find a list of signee organizations. 

FCAA is proud to help continue this vital conversation in Washington D.C. Join key stakeholders – including The Ford Foundation, Ms. Foundation for Women, National AIDS Fund, John M. Lloyd Foundation, United Nations Foundation, SisterLove, Center for Health and Gender Equity, and the International Planned Parenthood Federation – engaged daily in the fight for the reproductive rights of women with HIV/AIDS. 

Bring your voice to this important issue, discuss what’s working, and why, and meet other funders to explore opportunities for collaboration.

2:00–5:00 PM    Reproductive Rights of Women with HIV and AIDS  

This interactive, in-depth institute explores the many intersections of HIV/AIDS and Reproductive Rights and how we can work together to move past the traditional tensions between both the HIV/AIDS and the Reproductive Health communities.  We will discuss what can be done to build bridges, heal old wounds and move forward in common cause.  Topics for discussion include: 

•    Integration of HIV/AIDS prevention messages and sexual & reproductive health services for women everywhere;
•    Social justice issues such as criminalization, human rights, immigration, etc. - both domestic and international - that impact the reproductive rights of women with HIV/AIDS; and
•    Key advocacy and policy issues

Moderator: Desiree Flores, Program Officer, Health, Ms. Foundation for Women 


• Dazon Dixon Diallo, Founder & CEO, SisterLove 
• Lourdes Rivera, Program Officer, Ford Foundation
• Serra Sippel, President, Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE)
