The CDC launched Act Against AIDS Leadership Initiative, (AAALI), as part of its Act Against AIDS communication campaign in 2009. The initiative initially brought together some of the nation’s foremost African American organizations to intensify HIV prevention efforts in black communities. In 2010, CDC expanded AAALI to also include organizations that focus specifically on men who have sex with men (MSM), and the Latino community.
Based on the statistics gathered by the CDC, Act Against AIDS Leadership Initiative, (AAALI) an organization trying to Harness the Strength of National Organizations to Reach the Communities Hardest Hit by HIV, it is clear that HIV takes the greatest toll among African Americans, Latinos and MSM of all races.
