NMAC will be presenting an Action Plan addressing key factors that increase black gay and bisexual men’s vulnerability to HIV and AIDS.

This document (available for download on June 5th) makes recommendations for mitigating the impact the HIV and AIDS epidemic is having on the black gay community.

The Action Plan – RISE Proud: Combating HIV Among Black Gay and Bisexual Men

The Action Plan, titled “RISE Proud: Combating HIV Among Black Gay and Bisexual Men“, is a document commissioned by the Ford Foundation and the National Minority AIDS Council to mark out specific areas where health and wellness of black gay, bisexual, questioning and same-gender loving men can be improved for the better, especially when it comes to their vulnerability to HIV and AIDS.

The Action Plan addresses three specific areas where government policy and organizational practice can move in mitigating the impact HIV and AIDS is having on the black gay male community.

  1. Social Determinants
  2. Access to Sustained Healthcare
  3. Criminal Justice and Incarceration Among Black Men
