Stop HIVIf Washington, DC were a nation of Africa, it would rank 23rd out of 54 countries in terms of percentage of people with HIV. Of all adults between the ages of 15 and 64 in the District, 3 percent have HIV. This is higher than 5 countries receiving funding from the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). As the seat of the government of the largest donor nation when it comes to HIV, this city should be a model for how to end the pandemic. Instead, ours remains one of the world’s hardest hit communities.
 
With all the testing and treatment options, and all the ways we can now communicate with each other, we can change this. We can become a model for the country and the world. 

What’s the missing piece? 
 
You. 
 
Join us for an evening of learning more about how 20 minutes can change the course of HIV here in the nation’s capital and in the world. 
 
The end of the HIV/AIDS pandemic is truly within our sights, but we won’t get there without you. 
 
Brad OgilvieBrad Ogilvie, MS, LMFT, is a part-time counselor in Washington, D.C. as well as Program Coordinator for William Penn House, a Quaker program center on Capitol Hill. He founded The Mosaic Initiative in 2005 as an organization focused on stopping the HIV/AIDS pandemic. As a result of seeing people turned away from HIV-testing because they were not “high-risk,” he became involved in advocating for more options. He also takes the “people need counseling” concern to heart, and the reason he encourages mental health professionals to integrate testing into their practice. Previously, he has run an AIDS housing program and education center in IL, worked in holistic HIV clinic in the mid-1990s, and traveled to rural Kenya to be a part of community engagement on HIV (including building a community center there). He has also been living with HIV for 28 years.
