What’s at Stake?

Statement by Bailey House CEO, Gina Quattrochi Over the last two years, New York State and other jurisdictions have developed doable strategies and plans to reduce new infections to under 700 new cases, meaning that there will finally be an AIDS free generation. After 35 years of work the end could be in sight. Whether [...]

Women and girls as collateral damage in the HIV/AIDS epidemic

Thirty-four years into the epidemic, women and girls are still overlooked in almost every aspect of federal, state and local HIV/AIDS policy, funding and care. Yet we continue to be infected and we continue to die.  One in 5 new HIV infections in the US are among women.  AIDS diagnoses among women in the US [...]

5,000 Homeless Youth in New York State

One of the things I enjoy most about the holidays is spending time with my children, now ages 20 and 25. It is therefore hard to imagine that there are approximately 5,000 youth ages 13-24 in New York State who are homeless this Thanksgiving and don’t have a family to share the holidays with this [...]

Guest blog post by Joseph Neese

I’ll never forget October 2009. I had just returned to campus at Boston College following several months abroad in Argentina. My boyfriend from that time was making the ages-old pilgrimage to Machu Picchu – now one of the ten wonders of the world. The immense joy of that moment was instantly sapped when, days later, [...]

“Women Hold Up Half the Sky” Except in HIV/AIDS policy, care, prevention and funding!

There is an old Chinese proverb that says, “Women hold up half the sky”. In 2014, I’d add, “Except in HIV/AIDS policy, prevention, strategies and care.” Women are not, as many people like to say, the “new face of AIDS”. For over 32 years, women, especially black women and Latinas, have been infected with the [...]

James Lister’s 30% Story

Last week Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio reached an agreement that will have far-reaching effects on low-income New Yorkers living with AIDS who qualify to receive rent assistance from the City.  It reverses a decade-long injustice that was created by the Giuliani Administration and continued through Mayor Bloomberg’s time.

When seeing a doctor is not enough

Recently Kaiser Health News published a story about the concerns some people living with HIV/AIDS have about Obamacare.  As the Affordable Care Act is implemented, many have questions about how current insurance coverage may be affected and whether funding streams like the Ryan White Care Act will survive. These are all very appropriate concerns as [...]

If we housed Dasani…

I was surprised how affected I was by The New York Times series on Dasani, the young girl growing up in a City “family” homeless shelter in Brooklyn. I say that because for 23 years I’ve seen my share of family tragedy and anguish resulting from poverty, homelessness, violence and dashed dreams. I thought I [...]
