The Southern AIDS Coalition, was formed in 2001 as a membership organization of government representatives, corporations, and community advocates.
This unique partnership is born from the burgeoning numbers of people in the South with infection rates much higher than in the rest of the U.S. population, particularly for newly diagnosed cases. Federal funds do not meet the needs of those living with HIV in the South and are not equally distributed across the country. The HIV/AIDS outbreak is at a state of emergency in the southern United States. The disparate impact of this epidemic on southern citizens, especially within communities of color, must be addressed. The Southern AIDS Coalition works to provide southerners with the opportunity to receive adequate HIV/AIDS prevention information, treatment, support services, and housing. SAC is a federally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit entity.
