TAKE THE PLEDGE TO STOP NEW HIV INFECTIONS: EXPAND TESTING, TREATMENT, & PREVENTION.
The Virtual Baltimore AIDS Walk & Music Fest is challenging our community to unite and take every virtual step during this pandemic to stop the HIV epidemic. We declare that 40 years of HIV is decades too long. In memory of the many we’ve lost to HIV and in honor of our long-term thrivers who live with HIV, we pledge to raise money to expand HIV testing, prevention, education, and treatment and do all we can to prevent new HIV infections.
Founded in Baltimore’s Mt. Vernon neighborhood in 1978, Chase Brexton began as a volunteer-run gay men’s health clinic. Our work took on a new and difficult challenge in the early1980s when we became one of the first clinics on the front lines of the fight against HIV and AIDS. After seeing the needs of the family and loved ones of those we served, we expanded our services, adding Behavioral Health and Social Work services in 1991 and finally expanding to full Primary Care services in 1995.
In partnership with local community organizations, we anticipate 500 participants with the goal of raising $165,000 to support local Community Partners with HIV and AIDS programming. Proceeds raised by Chase Brexton Health Care will support the delivery of HIV medication to our patients’ doorstep.
As we fight the COVID pandemic, we continue to work to end the HIV epidemic.
Every generation has the power to stop HIV. We can make this happen together.
