Preventative Outreach Is Still Key For HIV/AIDS Activists, But Can They Count On The Funds?

Community Epidemiologist, Sista Yaa Simpson, (who made an appearance in our “Art Ideology” film), was contacted by Real Chi Youth reporter Michael Key Jr to talk about how people living with HIV/AIDS are surviving in our current healthcare system. She voiced that community services should focus on getting the knowledge of infections to those living with the virus and consult them on how to not let the virus progress. With preventive care vulnerable to repeal, the story focuses on the concerns of a current carrier found in an online forum, about the possible repeal of the ACA ( Affordable Care Act) and the feeling of living in a ‘Medical Apartheid’.
