Maura Riordan

Board Member

Ms. Riordan’s HIV/AIDS work spans back to the late 1980’s when she began working with gay men who were dying of AIDS. Before her current job with AIDS United (previously National AIDS Fund), she served as Executive Director of Women Organized to Respond to Life-threatening Diseases (WORLD) for 7 years. Through working with both HIV+ gay men and HIV+ women, Maura has seen how gender inequities, racism, poverty and homophobia are fueling the HIV epidemic. She has dedicated a significant amount of work to raising the profile of HIV+ women in the epidemic and working to stop a trajectory for American women that mirrors the global reality of women serving as the majority of those infected with HIV.
