Notes: The Women of Color Advocacy Institute is being offered free-of-charge, during the 2006 HIV Prevention Leadership Summit (HPLS).
Description: The Women of Color Advocacy Coalition provides support for National Minority AIDS Council (NMAC) public policy initiatives, including representing the special needs of women suffering from HIV/AIDS before state, local, and federal officials.Women of color worldwide have been increasingly and disproportionately at risk of contracting and living with HIV/AIDS. To address this situation, NMAC has launched the "Initiative for Cultivating Leadership among Women of Color in the Fight against HIV/AIDS", commonly called the Women of Color Advocacy Initiative. It helps women of color acquire the skills they need to take on active, visible leadership roles in addressing HIV/AIDS within their communities.
