ABOUT RISK TO REASONS
ViiV Healthcare has committed $5 million in community grants to reframe and refocus HIV prevention and care for Black women. Through the Risk to Reasons initiative, ViiV Healthcare will continue to develop new messages, new messengers and new methods to increase awareness and action around HIV prevention for Black women. Guided by advocates across the country, the initiative is creating content, funding community action and connecting advocates to change the impact of HIV in Black communities and get more Black women connected to prevention and care.
