2017 Spring Convening

Mission Impossible: Retooling for a Changing Environment
April 26th, 2017
9:30 – 2:30 pm
Review the recap blogs:
Greetings funder.  Your mission (and you’ve already accepted it) is: to ensure HIV prevention, care and treatment services that are accessible and responsive to the most vulnerable populations; to protect the human rights of LGBTQ communities, sex workers and injecting drug users; to integrate HIV and SRHR services, ensure access to abortion and family planning; to promote safe and healthy future that allows women and girls to thrive.  Right now, forces are conspiring that make your work more difficult, but never fear, our experts will help to prepare and equip you for success in this new, more challenging environment. Our first panel will interpret early indicators from the administration and congress, share what they portend for the future of our work, and explore strategies for addressing barriers to our efforts. After a open networking lunch, our second panel will help funders get to know the “new regime”, learn their language, and respond to their interests.

This convening is the second program of the new FCAA Advocacy Network,  established in partnership with amfAR, Friends of the Global Fight against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the Kaiser Family Foundation, the National Association of State and Territorial AIDS Directors, the National Minority AIDS Council, American Jewish World Service, and Open Society Foundations.  The Network was launched in January to monitor the rapidly evolving political landscape and equip funders with the tools they will need over the next four years. The network’s first webinar in January was FCAA’s most attended webinar to date.
