In recognition of World AIDS Day to be marked on December 1, public officials and public health advocates gathered at the Brooklyn Public Library on November 28 to highlight the need for continued vigilance against an epidemic first recognized 37 years ago.
Representatives from Amida Care, a nonprofit that provides comprehensive coverage and coordinated care to Medicaid recipients in New York City; the National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS; Bridging Access to Care, a Brooklyn AIDS services group; and the office of Borough President Eric Adams were on hand for a program that included free HIV testing, music, readings, performances, and artwork.
