We couldn't be prouder to announce @parisjackson as #ETAF's newest Ambassador. Reaching young people with HIV education is crucial for breaking down the unique stigma attached to this global health and social justice issue. We are so grateful for her willingness to use her platform and her voice to help advance our work. #GenEndIt : @samora_chapman
At the opening ceremony of #2017USCA, Dr. Michael Gottlieb and @judithlight presented our inaugural Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation Dr. Michael Gottlieb Partnership Award to @macys, highlighting the deep-rooted partnership to end #AIDS between Ms. Taylor and Macy's. All of these folks have been at the forefront of the AIDS pandemic since the beginning just like our founder @elizabethtaylor and it was such an honor to be a part of this event with them! Thank you @n.m.a.c for this opportunity!
Also, HUGE thanks to @delta for getting our team to Washington DC safe and sound <3
PS: You can help us continue Ms. Taylor's fight through Macy's #ThanksForSharing campaign! (Link in bio)
Today at #USCA2017, #ETAF hosted and moderated a panel discussion about normalizing #HIV testing, highlighting barriers such as the elusive and powerful force of stigma, but also shining light on what's working re: outreach, education, and willingness from medical providers and facilities to make HIV testing culturally competent and a routine part of health care. Thank you @repraulruizmd, @desertaids, @grassrootdc, @actagainstaids, #DrGottlieb, and #ETAF Ambassador @deondrebmoore for making this urgent topic meaningful and inspiring everybody has an HIV status!! #DoingIt

Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by #hurricaneharvey. Thank you #TexasHIVMedicationProgram and #ADAP for your urgent services! If you or anyone you know needs emergency assistance for lost HIV meds due to the storm, visit dshs.texas.gov/hivstd/meds for guidance.

At a men's health day this weekend in a village in Mulanje, Malawi, I shared that I was living with HIV for 26 years because I got tested and have been on treatment ever since. My reason for sharing was to encourage the 100+ men to get an HIV test, but the outcome helped break stigma as 4 men came forth to share with their village (and the national newspaper covering the event) their own HIV status. The 3 men in the pic each told of the huge weight that was lifted by sharing their truth. #ETAF#EndStigma#EndAIDS#GAIA#Malawi#TheTruthShallSetYouFree#knowyourhivstaus
We are so happy to have the opportunity to show #ETAF Ambassador Brian Gott, our friend Cathy Ferrier with @sentebale, and one of our biggest champions, Crystal Zehetner with the Steward Family Foundation some of the programs we support alongside #GAIA in Malawi. And, we're making a few new friends along the way!

Huge thanks to our friends @raisingmalawi for coordinating a tour for #ETAF to visit the Mercy James Centre during our trip in Malawi! The centre is a much needed state-of-the-art pediatric surgery and intensive care unit in Blantyre. We loved meeting Venancio Kapalamula, the center administrator, who showed us their urgent work. Happy Birthday week to @madonna who established #RaisingMalawi to support children orphaned by #AIDS and prevent #HIV in adolescents. #iambecauseweare

#ETAF has a blast hanging with the campers and leaders from @hollywoodsheart and @oneheartland yesterday! Our Ambassador @kellygluckman shared an intimate performance piece about her diagnosis and overcoming #HIV stigma, embodying this camp's mission of empowering youth through education and exploration of the #arts!
We've had another incredible visit with our grantee partners at Nkosi's Haven, this time with our friends @iamscottwolf and @alexandradaddario.

"Elizabeth Taylor is no longer with us but her legacy as an early and committed supporter of research on HIV/AIDS and respect for those sickened by the virus lives on forever. She spoke out forcefully and often in the 1980s, when the AIDS epidemic was mysterious and frightening to many people. Her legacy lives on with the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation which she founded in 1991, to focus on care and education about AIDS prevention."
