AIDS 2016 Conference Objectives

AIDS 2016 aims to reinvigorate the response to HIV and AIDS by: 

  • Bringing together the world’s experts to advance knowledge about HIV, present new research findings, and promote and enhance scientific and community collaborations around the world;
  • Promoting HIV responses that are supported by and tailored to the needs of at risk populations or people living with HIV, including women and girls, men who have sex with men, transgender people, sex workers, young people, and people who use drugs;
  • Promoting activism and community mobilization that holds leaders, industry, and governments accountable and increases their commitment to an evidence-based, human-rights-affirming HIV and AIDS response; 
  • Advancing a clear agenda for HIV in a post-2015 framework, including the cross-cutting issues of criminalization, gender-based violence, sexual and reproductive health, rights, and stigma and discrimination that keep people living with HIV at the center of the HIV response; and 
  • Building innovative partnerships with businesses, community, government, and science to strengthen HIV prevention and treatment efforts.

IN MEMORIAM
Jacque Muther

Jacque and her hero, Congressman John Lewis 

Although we are saddened by our loss, please focus on all of Jacque's remarkable accomplishments. In short, Jacque's efforts for the Ponce Center, locally in Atlanta and nationally were instrumental to advocating for our patients and many feel that she saved more patients' lives for more years than anyone else in Georgia. Her efforts at the Ponce Center kept us together and funded as a program, bringing millions upon millions of dollars to IDP.

 

Never happier than when she was with children, it is due to Jacque's passion and strength of will that our Pediatric program became a part of the Ponce Center. She was also key to ensuring that Ryan White funds were available not only to Atlanta, but across all parts of the United States!

 

A true hero in every sense of the word, Jacque was honored by the CAEAR Coalition for her lifetime of service just last year.

 

- David Reznik and Wendy Armstrong -


In lieu of flowers the family requests funds be donated to the Grady Foundation’s Jacque Muther Fund. The link to the Jacque Muther fund can be found in the Designation Section.
