Five Horizons staff participate in national, state, and local advocacy efforts in order to: 1) ensure that sufficient funding is allocated for the provision of HIV-related services, 2) reduce HIV-related stigma, and 3) promote practices that decrease the spread of HIV and STD/STI.
On an annual basis, staff and clients participate in AIDSWatch in Washington, D.C. This event brings together hundreds of advocates from over 30 states. In-person meetings are held with House and Senate offices, discussing the changes needed to end the AIDS epidemic in the U.S.
National Testing Day
June 2021 FHHS will be participating in National HIV Testing Day.
Five Horizons also advocates for public health issues, such as comprehensive sex education, needle exchange programs, and economic reform (i.e., Medicaid expansion).
