Metro Atlanta HIV Planning Council Holds 18th Annual Health Fair

Each year the Metropolitan Atlanta HIV Health Services Planning Council—also known as the Ryan White Part A Planning Council—hosts a free educational forum to advance its mission of linking persons living with HIV to care. Constituted under the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act of 2009, the Planning Council coordinates the comprehensive delivery of HIV/AIDS services and allocation of resources for the 20-county Atlanta Eligible Metropolitan Area.

 This year’s Atlanta Area Outreach Initiative (AAOI) will be held at the Loudermilk Center in downtown Atlanta, February 4th, from 9:00am to 5:00pm.  Former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders, known for her outspoken and frank discussions of health matters, is the keynote speaker.  The Chief Elected Official of Fulton County, Chairman John Eaves, is convening the event.  He’s encouraging all groups or individuals interested in helping end the HIV/AIDS epidemic to support this effort. “We have been addressing HIV/AIDS in aggressive ways and I truly believe we are making great strides, but much more needs to be done,”  Eaves says. “You have my commitment to continue working with all of those dedicated to end the crisis, so that one day we will proudly say HIV/AIDS has been eliminated in Fulton County.”
