PACT Partners


Partnering and Communicating Together to Act Against AIDS (PACT) is a funded partnership between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and some of the nation’s leading organizations representing the populations hardest hit by HIV and AIDS. Through their collaborative approach, PACT Members will assist in achieving the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States (NHAS) by reducing new HIV infections, improving health outcomes for individuals living with HIV, and reducing HIV related disparities. PACT Members will utilize their distinct viewpoints in creating a wide range of communication, mobilization and outreach.”  –Centers for Disease Control
